You really should get this pattern. It is such a cute pattern and I love all the versions I made so far. Let’s start with my boy’s versions and I will show you my girl’s versions in another post tomorrow. (Yes I know sale will be over by then but you have bought it already anyway right? lol)
If you follow me on Instagram , you have seen the back of this shirt before. This is my little mister in his Piano shirt. I so love how this shirt turned out. The fabric has been in my stash for a loooooong time waiting for the perfect project. That back looks so great! But I also love the front.
The Yoke front option was the perfect option for this fabric. Do you see how I changed to the whiter part of the fabric for that shoulder piece? I love that subtle change.
So I have a confession. This shirt is not hemmed. I added a bottom band. I added them to both his shirts to be honest. I had a huge fight with my cover stitch machine and had to cut of length to same both shirts. And what is the best way to add length? Yes, a bottom band. Let me show you his other shirt.
The colors on this shirt are so beautiful. The block stripes look great and I loved that I was able to find matching ribbing (joyfits again). I added sleeve cuffs to this shirt because of the same reason I added the bottom band. If you have bought this pattern and would like to add them but need help? Come to our Sofilantjes Sew and Show group on Facebook and we will help you.
This simple V-neckline is why I designed this shirt. I love a beautiful V-neck shirt on boys. Just love it.
Tomorrow I will show you my girl’s versions, I promise 😉 Thanks for stopping by.
