Now this doesn't happen very often but one of my middle boys, Garrett, requested that I make him a Christmas outfit for his program at school this year. We chose the Oliver + S Sketchbook pattern for both shirt and pants. This is a favorite of mine and the boys both. He picked out the shirting from some on hand fabric I had in my stash. It's from my lovely grandmother so it very special, perfect for a Christmas shirt. It's polyester blend and has a sheen to it. The shirt is a size 6, I added 3" to the length of the shirt and 1" to the sleeve length. While he has gotten taller he has not filled out any. I also hanged up the pocket a bit and made it triangle at the bottom instead of square.
The pants are a brown suiting I bought this past Easter but never got around to sew. Easter was full of smocking for the two little ones. He loves the fit and softness of both fabrics. These I just added length to make them pants form shorts. These are a size 7 so he will have tummy/bottom growing room.
I think he looks very sharp, so does his brother who has requested an outfit just like this one. That's Wyatt. They wear the same size clothes, right down do alterations. I am making him the same one so they don't fight over this one. I have his pants almost done as well.
I do love this pattern, it was love at first sew. : )
So are you ladies working on any last minute sewing too?
