We’ve been doing some back-to-school buying this week for my child. He is headed into 2nd grade following week … I can not think just how huge he is getting!

Like lots of 7 years of age, my boy definitely loves Mario! I chose to stitch him a new button-up shirt for institution out of some Mario-themed cotton I thought the brand-new shirt could give him some additional self-confidence as he starts the academic year. I have a little of left-over fabric, so I’ll possibly make him a matching facemask, too.

Right here are some cute photos of my son in his new shirt:

Right here are the ideas you’ll require to acquire to stitch the youngsters’s Classic Oxford Button-Up Shirt:

  • 1.5 lawns of cotton textile. You might utilize flannel or any kind of soft, woven material.
  • Lightweight interfacing for the collar and also button placket
  • 8 tiny switches
  • Universal 80/12 sewing needle

I think my son’s shirt prospered. It had not been too difficult to stitch, especially given that I left the pocket off and also made the short-sleeve version. Nonetheless, I ranked this pattern ‘intermediate’ because the placket, collar, as well as curved hem are testing for a beginner to figure out. Do not be worried, though. Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop has some really wonderful image directions. That’s why I am such a follower of this pattern business.

I made my kid a dimension 7, as well as it transformed out slightly huge. In store-bought clothing he is a 6-7 today, so simply make your children the size they commonly wear. I will certainly be utilizing this pattern again.

Let me understand if you attempt it. Leave a pic in the comments listed below!
