Sheesh. Maybe its me but I can’t bring myself to pay $20 for a pair of jammies that he’s going to outgrow in a few months. So that got me thinkin’, why not just try finding a pattern and making it myself? I can do this!
I was doing my hair the other day and when I raised my arms above my head, I noticed my brand new clearanced, oh-so-cute striped shirt from old navy had a hole in the arm pit. Not just a torn seam, but a nibble looking hole, above the seem and therefore not a simple fix. Dang it! Whelp I can’t wear this any more:
The “nibble” holeI found a tutorial online with a pattern for a 2T pajama pant and just started cutting it down and “eye-balling” it size-wise. I’m not gonna lie, that’s a bad plan. I should have grabbed a shirt and pant that currently fit as a reference like a good seamstress would have and should have done, but I like living on the edge
Keep in mind I attempted to make a shirt AND pants out of a size extra small fitted knit shirt so I think I deserve some credit for making something that I was able to
Ha ha! I love it! I'm still bummed the shirt was about a size 3-6m. The bottom just barely touched the top of his pants here so when he stood up his belly stuck out and I couldn’t stop laughing. This will go down in the mean mommy chronicals
My favorite is the back :Sigh. I’m undeterred though. I will prevail! So back to the drawing board to get the size right. Anybody have any striped (gotta be striped-I’m obSESSED) stretchy knit shirts they want to donate to the cause? Hmmmmm?
Ok I gotta get to bed. Night night all.
