And now its time to show off my other Wild Thing!
I might be an overly positive person, but this is yet another great pattern I sew up.
I’m always a little nervous sewing collars to shirts, but this one came together
beautifully in first try!
I made it in size 6 and it fits just the way I wanted it to.
I’m pretty proud off how nicely I managed to line up the pocket!
Awww that cute face!
The fabric is Monarch Aqua from Cotton + Steel, I bought it from Miss Matatabi
I hope you are ready for some picture overload of my handsome young guy!
The pants are old jeans from H&M which were too short and I just cut
off the legs and made them into shorts.
I zigzagged the edged so they wouldn’t fray too much.
That’s it folks!
We have been enjoying some lovely springdays in between the rainy ones so I could finally snap some photos outside. And o boy it is sooooo much easier than dealing with setting up the backdrop and trying to figure out the lighting, which I haven’t been successful
with this winter.
Hopefully it won’t be as far between my blogposts now that we are going towards
My littlest man turned 5 in February and of course that called for a new button down shirt.
I used the Bookworm
shirt pattern from Blank Slate Patterns
. I made view A in size 5. The pattern is really good with great instructions as Blank Slate patterns tend to be
so the shirt came together quite easily.
I wanted a slim fit so I didn’t size up this time, but I think it is too short so I should have added to the length. He will just have to wear this shirt for every occasion we get before he outgrows it.
The fabric is Arrows from the Mustang collection from cotton + steel
I ordered mine from
Even Anita likes this fabric and wants a dress from it!
It’s not so easy to see but for the inside of the collar stand I used XOXO in green with gold also from cotton + steel.
His jeans are from Next so I wont be taking credit for them.
