Fortunately I've sewn this shirt up before and didn't have to spend a lot of time figuring out instructions.
The theme for PR&P this week is "Mad for Plaid." Two of Ryan's dress shirts made into a Henry Shirt were perfect for the challenge.
This version is for Daniel. He. Loves. It.
And now, because I couldn't pick just one, and because he was so excited to be the recipient/object of my sewing/picture taking, and because he makes my heart skip beats. . .
here is a picture overload.
|This photo gives me an idea of what he'll look like at 15. Be still my heart.|
Pattern: The Henry Shirt from Sewing for Boys
Fabric: two upcycled dress shirts (one short-sleeved)
Size: 2/3 with added two inches to length
made pocket taller
narrowed back pleat to 1"
used buttons instead of snaps
Thoughts: I am SO much happier with the fit of this shirt! I really didn't like the boxiness of the first version I made, but this one is just right. If I make another for Lee, I'll use the 4/5 size and just add length.
Overall we're both thrilled with the result. The whole ensemble turned out just as I'd imagined.
Next week is signature style week! I'll be back to sewing for The Girl.
