Have you been following the Celebrate the Boy series over at Made and Made by Rae? They have been sewing up some seriously awesome boy clothes the last two weeks. I love that they do this series. It is pretty easy to sew cute things for Erin, there is a lot out in blogland that is centered around sewing for girls but not so much for boys. It is so great to see fun stuff to sew for boys and get inspired.
I was definitely inspired by Dana and Rae to sew up a fun outfit for Jack in honor of Celebrate the Boy and to add to his wardrobe for the spring/summer. I used Rae's FlashBack Skinny tee pattern for an up-cycled short sleeve shirt and Dana's Kid's Pants tutorial for some shorts. I had a shirt of Kevin's in my up-cycle bin for about a year now so I figured it was about time to make it into something different. I don't think Kevin even wore the shirt. I bought it for him at Abercrombie & Fitch several years ago and he never liked the fit. I am really glad that I saved it though because it turned out to be a pretty cool tee shirt for Jack! And Dana's first post in the series was just the kick start I needed to make the shirt Jack-size. I was able to use the existing hem on the sleeves too which is always a bonus.
