I have to start this post by saying, in no way do I think my son is an airhead. In fact, he is quite the opposite. He has definitely inherited math wiz genes from my husband…his smarts blow me away. Okay…on to the title of this post. This week’s theme for PR&P is candy. Of all four weeks, this week stumped me the most, I had no idea what I was going to do. So I started to look through my fabric stash (begging for a little inspiration) and found this great, bright blue linen blend fabric and went from there. The color reminded me so much of airhead packaging and so my theme was born…what do you think? So the shorts. I used the W Pants pattern from Melissa over at Blank Slate Patterns. This pattern is great! I used her tutorial to create a faux fly since that’s what my Bubba would request. And then on the backside I used Kate’s tutorial (again) for zipper piping. I had this great, old metal zipper in my stash that I cut apart and placed on the W shaped yoke in back. This pattern is great…and I have several more things I want to crank out of the pattern (like a pair of shorts and pants for Sweet Pea). The shirt is the Recess Raglan Tee from Kate. Instead of the elbow lengthed sleeves, I wanted short sleeves. To do this I cut the sleeve at the shortest elbow length marking (the one to use the sleeve band with) and simply folded under 1/2 inch and then folding under 1/2 inch again and hemmed. I will definitely be making a few more shirts from this pattern…it is wonderful! While lots of you are gearing up for cooler weather, we are prepping to have summer hang around for a few more months. In fact, it barely gets cold here, so summer clothing makes up about 90% of our wardrobe! One of my favorite parts about sewing for my kids is when they reach for their mama made clothes in the morning, which is happening more and more these days. These kids make my heart soar!
