The Boy’s Party Shirt

I made The Boy a bowling shirt to wear to his sister's party. When I asked him what he wanted me to make for his party he chose another bowling shirt. The Scientific Seamstress has a lot of options in her pattern, so it was fun to make another shirt using the same pattern that was totally different. After choosing my collection of coordinating blender fabrics I had him chose which three he liked best. We like wild, but while I knew I'd use all seven fabric's for The Girl's dress, I thought that might be a little over the top for the bowling shirt. I made this one a little longer than his ladybug shirt, and I opted to make the middle stripe of fabric longer than the pattern suggested, since it was my feature fabric. I love it!

  1. That's gorgeous!

    I love the colored buttons and the way the pattern size goes from small to large, top-to-bottom!

    Inspiring as always...

  2. He is adorable and so is the shirt. I loved sewing for my kids when they were little. Wouldn't be so adorable now. At 29, 27, 23 and 13 they for some reason don't want me making their clothes anymore.... Weird, huh?
    I have used tools from the ScientificSeamstress website before. It is a great resource.
    Really cool job with the matching outfits for your kids. What a cool mom :-)

      Thank you. I'm having fun dressing them. I think the zebra print pants will be the next thing I make him. (He picked out the fabric.) Congrats on your first etsy sale!

      Thanks, Lorna. I'm kinda bummed I didn't buy more of the scribbles. It's the only fabric I didn't end up with at least a fat quarter of. Though there are some scraps that were big enough to cut up for my strips and squares bins, so I will get to use it again somehow.
