Welcome back for another week! It was so neat to see all your projects last week; I can’t wait to see what all my readers come up with this week!
Our theme for week 3 is colourblocking. Colourblocking is a great technique to add interest to boys’ tees, especially if you are working with solids. This technique is a little different from the others I have shown you so far because you do all the work even before cutting into your fabric. Don’t worry, it is easy! I’ll be posting the tutorial (and linky party!) tomorrow, so be sure to come back.
The project I prepared for this week is a colourblocked short sleeved hoodie. This top features a lined hood and side circle pockets. I used interlock knit, so it is a perfect layering piece for our cool Albertan summers.
I sized up so that this top will fit my little guy into this fall. The jeans are also mama-made, using Ottobre 4/2013 #7 the Alvin Stretch Baby Jeans. You can read more about them here.
The Wingman Shirt I used for this week was provided by our pattern sponsor: Patterns for Pirates. I’ve worked with Judy several times now, and love working with her and her designs. She designs clothing mostly for boys, with details that make your garment look like it came from the store.
The Wingman Shirt includes pattern pieces for underam wings, which any boy (or girl!) will love. Kelly used this pattern last week to showcase applique; you can read more about it here.
We welcome back Duncan and Kate for another week as our fabric sponsor.
