When he gave it to me I asked him what I should make out of it. "Jammies for me!" he said.
There wasn't quite enough fabric for his requested shirt and shorts so I used another fabric for the shirt top and back. I also used KAM Snaps for the closure. I used the Everyday Camp Shirt Pattern from FishSticks Designs for the shirt. I love that pattern! It was super easy to follow and the fit is great! I sewed a size 5.
His big brother also got a couple of much need pajama shorts as well. For the shorts on both boys I used the Kickin' Back Sweats pattern from the Sewing for Boys books. This pattern is very generous and I ended up using a size 4/5 for Jack (who usually wears a 7) and sizing it down a bit for Luke.
I made the second pair of short out of Camo fabric and I didn't realize that the print actually has a direction until after I sewed it up and had him try them on. Can you see what I mean?
Oh well, he loves them just the same. He decided he can where them as summer daytime pants as well. I forget how easy these are to make. Maybe I should sew up a few more Summer play clothes. These ones are already seeing a lot of action!
Have a great weekend!
