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.

I am linking up at Sew Cute Tuesday and Thursday's Threads.

A very lovely outfit ! You are brilliant at making outfits ! I feel very scare just thinking of trying. When I made my daughter's skirt I found it very frustrating at time, and very rewarding when it was finished though.

I think boy's clothes are more difficult to make too, so congratulations and well done !!

It is really a lovely fabric too !

Love the dino fabric! It perfectly matches with the cute shirt pattern! You're so lucky to be able to sew for your boy... I'm a happy mom of two beautiful girls but sometimes I wish I can sew for the little Mr. Handsome, like your little guy!

That's cute. Sewing a simple dress for girls seems much easier than this. Well done!
