School started yesterday! WooHoo! – 6.5 hrs of uninterrupted sewing/designing time every day. It’s like Christmas, only better. (The kiddos were also very excited for school to start again.)
This year Connor starts 4th grade! Where has the time gone? He is now gaining on me rapidly in height. His feet are almost as big as mine (they are already bigger than my mom’s). He’s really growing up and of course he needs new (bigger) clothes all the time and now he told me he wants to “dress more grown up”.
I found this simple knit stripe at Jo-Ann’s and drafted a pattern from one of his other shirts that fit well. It turned out well — it fits just like the shirt I modeled it after.
I did quite a bit of fussy cutting on this one so that I could get all the stripes to match up!
I’m so glad the drafted pattern worked out well. (Especially since his wardrobe is mainly t-shirts and shorts/pants). I’m sure I will be using it again ….. at least until he grows out of that size.
