So for L I sewed up a size 5. According to the size chart I could have put him in the size 4, lengthened to the 5… But let’s be honest, he’s my most ‘average’ sized child when it comes to measurements and I really didn’t feel like fussing around with lengthening for once (not that it would have been difficult… but it’s just nice not to have to do it). The tee is a wee bit loose on him, but it doesn’t look baggy, so I’m really happy with how it turned out and it should last all summer.
For the fabrics, I used Laguna cotton jersey in royal and this super hero print by elvelyckan in Spoonflower’s modern jersey. I’ve heard mixed reviews about their fabrics and how they fade/hold up. But I’ve made a few things with it over the past few months (will share soon…. I swear!), and although it’s faded a bit in the wash, the majority of them have held up really well and I definitely would order it again.
Well my goofy 4 year old is super happy with his new ‘batman’ tee, and seeing as I have extra yardage, C is now requesting his own… Hopefully it doesn’t take me too long to make that one 😉
So how about you! Do you find it hard to sew for the boys in your life? Would you be interested in a sewing for boys kind of week where we could motivate each other?!
