Hi Everyone, it’s Anne again from Sofilantjes. I was asked to sew something up to inspire you. Hopefully I can.
The last post I wrote was more about girls than boys, so I though this time I will make it all about the boy, my big Hero. For my inspiration post I was allowed to choose a pattern from Made by Rae. If you did not check out her pattern shop, it is a must. She has some beautiful patterns. Plus a great blog to follow. I choose the Flashback Skinny Tee for my skinny almost 6 yo and she was so lovely to send me the Parsley Pants too, in case I wanted to sew it later on. So sweet!
I sewed up a size 6 with a little extra length. My son is the perfect size 6 in chest according to the size chart. It fits him beautiful and skinny, just like it should. I gave my son a cars shirt with his own road, traffic light and a car! If only I had a car like that….
The road is made by cutting a strip of black knit fabric and adding yellow stripes with a (paint)fabric marker. I sewed it on top of the sleeve with my coverstitch. The car is an iron-on I once received with a fabric order from Joyfits. The two-tone cuff is a hack of the normal 2″ cuff in the pattern. Looks easy right?! I am sure you can do even better than me.
It’s save to say that he really loves this shirt. He wants to wear it again tomorrow. Thank you Rae for a great pattern and sponsoring this winter edition of Kids Clothes week.
Comment on this post to win the classic Made by Rae pattern combo, the Flashback Tee and Parsley Pants, as well as one yard of knit fabric from Imagine Gnats. Rachael has such a fantastic variety of knits in her shop that you could make a flashback tee out of each one of them and they would all be awesome! Here are a few that caught my eye. They would all look fabulous with a 2-color cuff, a technique I’m now itching to try out!!
