Sewing for Boys – Ottobre 1/2012 #26
This is the Mahpee raglan t-shirt pattern from the Spring 2012 Ottobre.
Both fabrics are nice soft cotton interlocks, very comfortable materials. This is size 134. Ottobre kind of leaves you on your own for the neck binding. I used one of my double fold bias binder attachments on my coverstitcher, starting with a piece that was 1.75″x20″ and then clipping the excess.
This is my 7 year old, he is 132cm tall and the 134 size fits him pretty well. The sleeves are a touch long, but in a month they’ll be perfect and in two months they’ll probably be barely okay.
This is what I got when I asked him to smile for real. Crazy boy. This fabric print is one of those I feel like we are just barely getting away with at his age. Second grade seems to be the end of cute, but these moose and bears were deemed okay.
As I’ve come to expect from Ottobre, all the pieces fit together nicely and it was a quick project.
Jack grew a lot over the summer and needs long sleeve shirts now that fall is officially sticking around, so expect more boy stuff here soon.
