Kids Clothes Week – Day 1

Having taped the pattern together last week it dawned on me that this week is Kids Clothes Week.

I am a bear of very little brain at the moment and it had completely failed to sink in until yesterday morning.

At which point I decided that, yes, I could manage an hour a day of sewing, and yes, this would be the perfect opportunity to make a shirt for Boy in time for his birthday celebrations in a couple of weeks.

So Day 1 saw the pattern pieces being cut out and a shirt kindly gifted to us by our friend Martin for just such a purpose being hacked into small pieces.

Oh artificial light…you are so gloomy!

Note to the wise.  Cut your collar before you cut your yokes.  Yokes can be finangled.  Collars not so much.

This is a better representation of the colours.

Boy’s shirt will now have a grandad collar! 

I can live with that!

    An hour a day sounds manageable and those colours will look so good on him!

    I didn’t think I was going to participate but the ‘one hour a day for seven days’ made it sound manageable. I’m making the Titchy Threads skinny jeans for my 2 year old.
    The shirt looks great and even better that it’s coming from an upcycled garment.

  4. Grandad collars are the coolest.
    Well done for even getting this far 🙂

  5. Do you know I have yet to make a shirt. I mean a proper one with stand collar and such, so thank you for the tip about the collar! I also have a couple of wee nephews and some donated work shirts I so I could practice, right? Oo good idea.

  6. Gorgeous – have never made a shirt!

  7. He will look very smart.
