Well then…kids clothes week was not quite as productive as I would have liked.
One of these seasons, I’ll really get on board with this. But I did get another item cranked out, this time for my little guy.
The other day he asked me if I would make ‘all of his shirts.’ I have not sewn for this kid in…oh….about a year. This post, to be exact. It’s shameful, I know.
So this one was for him.
The pattern is another Bimaa. I wanted something simple for him, but didn’t want to just make a t-shirt. Although he has since asked me to make it short-sleeved. The knit was some I picked up at Jo Ann’s awhile back. When I intended to sew for this guy a bit more (whoops!).
I love this neck option, although I had originally intended on making a hood. I didn’t simply because I didn’t have enough fabric, and that, my friends, was a happy accident. This collar option is called ‘shawl collar’ so I would never have thought to make it for my son, but I love it for him. It’s not your grandma’s shawl.
It needed a little something else, so my intention was to make little cut out pockets. Except that when I tried that the fabric was all wrinkly and wonky. I think I should have used some sort of interfacing to prevent this, although of course I don’t really know what I’m talking about. So in the end they are little faux pockets, and I like the look, even though they don’t have an actual function. I want to try this pattern again, but with a wider fit.
So that brought an end to KCW. The remaining of the week was cutting out another sewing pattern and a little fabric shopping. Time to head out and check what gems everyone else sewed up last week!
PS: He likes it!
