How cute is this?
Gabriel has hung onto this shirt for all of these years, and finally decided that I could use it to make something special for Liam. I have always loved this shirt. It's incredibly soft cotton, and the pattern is fantastic: beach vibes without being in-your-face-aloha. But the best part is the memories it holds of two boys who proudly wore their matchy shirts.
Now, Liam is part of the club.
I used Rae's Tutorial for how to convert a man's shirt into a boy's, combined with "Kai's Shirt Pattern" from Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing. It only took a bit of the afternoon to complete, and I must say, the result is perfect.
