The pattern for the tee was from the Ottobre autumn 2012 issue. The pattern has long sleeves so I used another tee of his to decide where to cut for the short sleeve. It was an easy pattern just 3 pieces. I have another one to share later this week once I get the shorts made to go with it.
Speaking of shorts I used the same free pattern from Caila Made that I used with these cat shorts to make these lovely orange gingham ones. I did lengthen the pattern by an inch in hopes he can wear them next summer too. And I raised the rise of the waist a bit too since I thought my first pair was a bit low rise for me. I added back pockets to since I like that addition to basic shorts.
We will be celebrating Carter's second birthday this weekend and my house is a mess and I've got a cake to make so hopefully I can get my other outfit for him done. I also have an Anywhere dress cut out that I would like to get finished too! Summer seems to be flying by with kid activities and lots of pool time (especially this week with all our heat!) I am looking forward to sewing more once school starts back up!
Oh...one other very fun note! I ran into Vanessa from V and Co on Tuesday at JoAnn's in town! I follow her blog and love her latest fabric line. Of course I went right up and introduced myself and she was of course very lovely and nice! It was a fun treat, especially as I was just coming from spending an hour in a half at the DMV renewing my drivers license! Until next time, happy sewing!
