By now I'm sure you've seen this book floating around blogland.
|'Sewing for Boys' by Shelly Figueroa & Karen LePage|
Having two boys of my own, I just had to have it. So when I recently scored some really great pillowcases at the Thrift store, I decided to use one of them to make the 'Henry Shirt' from the book. And believe it or not, the size 4 can be made using just one large pillowcase (+ 1 contrasting fabric).
The pattern said it was for the advanced sewer... but I of course I didn't read that until after I had cut all the fabric.
There was no turning back.
And yes, I was in over my head.
And there was a lot of seem-ripping.
One of my favourite features in this pattern is the built in pocket on each side.
All in all I'm happy that I attempted this pattern because I learned a LOT.
Now to put the snaps on!
