Too cute for words -- both the shirt and your little one! Your review and Sewjennie's makes me wish I had this issue -- I actually think it would work for little girls, with the right fabric and maybe a few embellishments. Very nice.

I didn't see this when you first posted. What a great tee - and your son is a cutie!

OMG Melissa! How cute is that?! I have been MIA for a while, but I'm glad I didn't miss this one. I have this cut out, but haven't started sewing it yet. PS. I LOVE your retro dress too! :) ~Ousa

Oh thank you all for your sweet words! I love this shirt too, it's so stylish and really so easy (even having to alter my pattern for the smaller size). And I have no clue how he cooperated so well for pictures, that isn't the usual case! Busy kids always on the go!!!

How did you get him to stay still long enough to take all those adorable pictures?

That looks great!! I must try that pattern for my boys! Thanks for the tips on altering the size - we'll need to do that too.

That is really cute. And so is the model. I love this pattern and Ottobre in general.

OMG! Andy is getting so big. He looks WONDERFUL in this outfit! You did a marvelous job morphing the color blocking from the larger size pattern to this smaller pattern.

Great shirt, your ds is adorable in his new outfit. Cute stripe shorts, too.

The shirt and pants are adorable. I've been so impressed with what I've seen reviewed from Ottobre that I just subscribed. It's encouraging to see such a postive review.
