Boy Sewing is Fun!
Here is Luke's new outfit. I used Oliver and S Sketchbook shirt and shorts pattern. I loved it. The shorts are essex linen in leather. The shirt is Michael Miller lil Dino fabric. The shirt (size 5) fits perfect. The shorts (size 5) are a little big just like all his store bought size fives. Hopefully he can wear the shorts next summer since it is already August.
This started out as total guilt sewing. I make so much more for Stella. Luke really wanted a dinosaur bathing suit. I thought maybe next summer I'd make him a bathing suit (when I am better at sewing) but I knew I could make him this shirt. And I don't feel like I can just make a shirt. I feel compelled to make a matching bottom. I wasn't really into this outfit at first. I kept thinking of all the other things I wanted to make. But when I put the shirt on him halfway through.and it looked so cute, I became very excited. And he was very happy too. My boy is actually pretty opinionated and picky so him liking it means a lot. Now I think sewing boys clothes is really fun.
