Ottober 03/09 #21 - "Little Fella" shirt

I haven't blogged for a while as I've been busy sewing Christmas presents. Unfortunately you'll have to wait to see photos of those items!
There is something that I can show you....

Robert is delighted with his new shirt. Actually, he has been very enthusiastic about it right from the start. He chose the fabric and when I told him that I was going to make him a shirt, he gave my leg a bear hug and exclaimed "Geeeeee, thanks Mum!!!!!". (Mental note: make equal amount of boy and girl clothes in the future).

The pattern is from Ottobre Designs issue 03/2009 design #21 "Little Fella " shirt. It goes together like a dream and was quite quick to make. I'll certainly be making more.

The only problem I have had with the shirt is that the fabric appears to be bunching on his chest. He appears to stand with his shoulders hunched forwards, and I think that is causing the problem. (You can't really see the problem in these photos as the fabric is so busy). I might have to work out a suitable pattern adjustment and tweak the pattern.

And finally ... I have had to include this photo as it is so darn cute!! (And for those who are interested, Laura's new Ikea Expedit bookcase is shown in the background).
