My grand- son wanted me to sew something for him. So we went through my patterns and he picked a shirt pattern. He then picked this cute rocket fabric out of my cotton stash.
CHILDREN'S AND BOYS' SHIRT, TANK TOP, PULL-ON CROPPED PANTS, PULL-ON SHORTS AND HEADWRAP: Shirt has front button closure, front pocket, short sleeves and side vents; tank top has scoop neckline and stitched hems; pull-on cropped pants or shorts have side seam pockets and elasticized waist; headwrap is also included.
I made the size 3-4 Shirt
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy I think a beginner would be able to follow them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Disliked that the shirt was a bit boxy.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The shirt was very wide so I had to take it in about an inch on both side seams. Also I used a solid yellow cotton for the under collar as I did not have enough of the rocket fabric.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Not sure I would sew this one again.
My grand-son loves his new rocket shirt!
Also got in a little more knitting. Another cardi for my Grand-Daughter.
McCalls released new patterns. Here is a few of my favs.
I have not gotten in my sewing room at all this week I hoping to this weekend. I have a few patterns and fabric all ready to go. Now all I need is the time :)
Thanks for stopping by.
