A new nephew meant that I had to sew!
A cute button up shirt is what I had in mind but none of my patterns had a size that could be worn soon--as in within the next half year.
After a quick search, I came across a free pattern/tutorial from Me Sew Crazy for a Baby Boy Button Up shirt in sizes 3-6 months.
Perfect, especially with the track record of my brother's kids--they grow fast even though they start out tiny...at least compared to my forever tiny children.
My sweet little nephew should be in this in no time!
The fabric I used is from the Fat Quarter Shop. The Sweet on NYC orange swirl--it says Pixie Pops for Timeless Treasures on the selvedge.
To cover the collar seam in the inside the tutorial/pattern called for hem tape. I honestly have no idea what that is (and didn't feel like looking it up or going out to buy that as I'd probably have to go into the city) so I used some double fold bias tape and just sewed that on instead. I really like how that turned out--it looks quite cute.
I'm not sure how this'll look on the little guy, but I'm hoping that the fit is good!
And, just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the last day to buy the pattern bundle if you haven't already!
It includes 2 patterns from Me Sew Crazy plus 16 other patterns--a steal at $24.95!
