Double Gauze Sketchbook Shirt
But first, to wrap up 2015 sewing, I have one more Oliver + S Sketchbook Shirt I made for Leo this fall. He wore this for school picture day, but unlike Louisa's Brooklyn Bridge dress, it was actually complete in time. :)
This is a soft, Japanese double gauze I found on fabric.com.
I sewed a size 5 but lengthened it one inch, which helps a lot. I also added collar buttons which is a nice touch since the gauze likes to curl.
Leo hates to wear "button shirts" but he tolerates this one since it is soft and has trucks. But he really prefers knit shirts, so I think I'll have to do more of that for him if I'm going to stick to my resolution this year.
This is my third time sewing this pattern and I really do like it. Highly recommend it for the little boys in your life!
Thanks for reading!
