Easter Wrap Up

 Phew... All my Easter sewing was finished just in time.  I finished Luke's Easter shirt Friday night.  Sadly I don't think he will ever wear it.  He wanted a pink shirt.  I thought that was fine.  My husband has pink dress shirts.  I used the Oliver and S sketchbook pattern.  I made view B but I really should have used the view A collar.  The view B collar with the pink fabric makes it look like Luke is wearing a shirt of Stella's.  The fabric is from Posy.  I didn't take a picture of him in it because I just wasn't crazy about it.  I still would have let him wear it on Easter if he wanted to but he was requesting a long sleeve shirt.  So I had him wear his explorer vest that I made him with a long sleeve green shirt I bought at Target last spring.  I am just calling this shirt good practice.

I made his sweater vest in less than two weeks;. It was going to go over the pink shirt but maybe I'll make him some other shirts in the fall to go with it.   It was so nice to knit a quick project.  Details are on Ravelry.  I was much more happy with this though I think it too looks a little more like something for Stella than for Luke.

Here they are right before we are about to leave for our Easter festivities.  The weather was beautiful but cool so Stella needed a shirt, tights, and a sweater to wear with her dress.  They are holding their stuffed animals that the Easter Bunny brought them. 

Now I have to get going on birthday presents for Stella and her cousin though I am tempted to finish Luke's quilt top. 

I am linking up with Plum and June over on from Pixels to Patchwork

The pink shirt turned out great! I second guess myself a lot too when sewing for my son...don't know why. The kids looked great, all dressed up for Easter. And I love Luke's cheeky grin!
