|UPDATE 2/6/14 I've added a photo of my great nephew in his new shirt and hat.|
Pattern Description: Boys' shirt and hat. Shirt has extended shoulders, double yoke, convertible collar and short sleeves. View A has side hemline slits and pocket. View B has shirt tail hemline and pockets. Double layer hat has crown, side panel and the brim has topstitching detail.
Pattern Sizing: XS (4-5), S (6), M (7-8), L (10), and XL (12-14). I made a Size S for my great nephew (DGN).
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Except for the contrasting color used for the pocket lining, under collar, double yoke, and front facings, it looks a lot like it.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The normal top notch instructions included with every KS pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
- I've made a Hawaiian shirt before, but never used the burrito method for the double yoke. Since I've made lots of pillowcases, it was a breeze.
- I liked the hemline option of either a shirt tail or side slit.
Fabric Used: The main fabric is 100% cotton batik w/plaid print in the background. I chose the contrast fabric, 100% cotton broadcloth, in order to bring out the dark orange in the plaid. Both fabrics were purchased at Walmart. Total Cost of Supplies: $18.23; Value of Time Spent Making It: Priceless!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- Used contrasting fabric for the pocket lining, under collar, front facings, and doulbe yoke.
- Changed thread colors as necessary to make sure they matched the color of the fabric. This took lots of extra time, but was well worth it.
- Omitted tab closure
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes to both. I've already got some Hot Wheels fabric standing by for the next shirt!
Conclusion: My DGN, who is 4 1/2 years old, gave a thumbs up to this fabric so I hope he likes what I came up with. I didn't get it done in time for the Ugly Fabric Challenge at our ASG Annual Meeting, but it's now ready to give to him.
I can see myself making this shirt for him again and again as he grows up.
