Kai’s Easton’s Shirt

After putting aside the Kai’s shirt project for several days, I came back to it, ready to shave off several inches on each side of the collar for the perfect fit. Thankfully, the rest of the shirt went together without a hitch (although I had a terrible time easing in the sleeves)! The real test, of course, is wrangling it onto Easton and seeing how it wears. My opinion? It’s a bit big. After looking back at the photograph included in the book, I noticed that it’s a bit loose on the model as well, so I’m guessing there’s a lot of ease with this pattern (Taylor thinks it looks like a doctor’s coat). Oh well, he’ll grow into it, eventually. Since the finished shirt is difficult to see on (it’s difficult to get an 11 month old to pose!), here it is laid out.

    Easton just keeps getting cuter and cuter. What size shirt did you make him? As you said he will grow into it. You are so talented.

    Cute shirt!….I happened to make one for my 7 year old son this week…..it sort of looks like your pattern. Simplicity #5581….very easy (I didn’t even look at the instructions)….I think it only comes in larger sizes, so Easton will have to grow a little!
    I used a darling light blue fabric with little gold fish scattered all over (each fish has his name written under him in tiny script)……I’ll try to post a picture on sewing review after I get the buttons on. I think the fabric came from fabric.com I had it in my stash 🙂
