back to school

After my rather successful attempts of making these shirts for my children at the beginning of the summer, I wanted to practice more with my lovely shiny overlocker and made shirts for my nephew and nieces from fabrics that they had chosen themselves. For me, the start into a new school year is still linked with new clothes and so I thought it would be a good excuse to make all of them one with no birthday in sight.

I have used the same pattydoo pattern, with a little variation on the biggest shirt as my nephew didn’t want a hood. Goodness, a normal neckline is actually more difficult than sewing a hood on.

I only hope that parcel didn’t get lost, that would be rather …ahem … disappointing.

I really love all the fabrics that they had chosen and I am thinking hard what to do with the rather little pieces that I have left….
