Hey everyone! It’s Melissa again. I noticed that I seem to sew a lot for my daughter and decided that I would take some time to sew some clothes up for my son. I almost always lean toward clothes with characters and fun prints, but those don’t always match with everything. So over the last few days I have sewn up a mini capsule for my little guy. Some links included in this post are affiliate links.
It doesn’t get too cold where we live in the desert so I don’t have to make (or buy) and super thick or warm clothes for the winter. Usually we can get by with a light jacket and on colder days, we put a long sleeve under it. Most of what I used came from Sly Fox fabrics. I used Heavy Ponte for pants and French Terry for shirts.
I usually make shorts because we live in the desert and it’s hot. Although our winters are mild, we still have some chilly mornings and some overall chilly days so I opted to make some pants. I have always loved the Wild Wide Leg Pants Pattern. It was one I helped test and really enjoy how adorable they turn out. The pants in each photo were made out of heavy ponte and came out perfect.
I have previously only used the Discoverer Tee for my daughter. I absolutely love how adorable it is on her and decided I would this pattern for my son. Aren’t these just too cute?
I love the Unisex Raglan Top as well. It’s a quick sew and a comfortable look. My little guy loves them and who am I to say no when he asks for them.
The Half Pipe Tee a pattern I absolutely love seeing sewn up, but sometimes I have a hard time deciding what prints or solids to use and if I should add any appliqués to it. I came across this print when looking for a print to coordinate with the black and my little guy grabbed this inspired mouse print and ran off with it. He decided he needed something out of it, so it became the Half Pipe Tee with solid black French terry. He was overjoyed when it was done.
During one of the recent Wacky Wednesday sales, I grabbed the Go Exploring Cardigan and decided I to sew it up with a minky print that I had. It came out perfect!
Last, but not least, we always need something to keep us a little warmer on chilly mornings so I made some outerwear. This Zayne Hoodie is absolutely adorable and made my little guy happy. I have to wash it while he’s sleeping because he doesn’t like taking it off.
I’m sure it’s only the beginning of his fall and winter clothes. And because my son is a goofball, enjoy some funny faces and poses he made while we were taking pictures.
