My sewing instructor gave me some free patterns from the 90's. I chose to make the shirt without the collar from Simplicity's 8307 circa 1998. I won't put in the zipper at the back, as this is made as a t-shirt, nothing fancy.
I measured out Tyler and he is a size 4. This pattern goes up to size 6, so I will keep it for a while. I decided to trace my pattern. 3 pieces, easy peazy.
I have some left over material, and kid's clothes goes a long way!
I recently discovered that if you pull out the tray life is a lot easier when trying to sew small areas!
Yeah, I know, I know... DUH! But it was an AH-HA moment, then quickly followed but DOAH!
Now, the one small problem. In my genius I omitted the zipper. One SMALL problem....It does not fit over his head. I don't want to waste a zipper on this shirt, so the plan is I will open it up and put Velcro to keep it shut. My son will not be able to dress himself with a zipper at the base of his neck, but Velcro works just fine.
