Sewing for Boys

Today the temperature is supposed to be around 90 degrees.  It’s one of those days I look into my youngest child’s closet and realize I don’t really have many appropriate clothes for this upcoming season.  The good thing is that a few of the items he wore the last time it was warm, he can still fit into.  That makes me realize that his clothes can last a couple of seasons around here, which means I might be able to start making him things.

In looking around for inspiration ideas, I noticed I was leaning a little towards the Asian trend.  For some unknown reason, I really think the harlem pants for little boys are adorable.  I can’t wait to sew up a pair and see if I like them on Oliver.

As far as shirts I have always been a fan of little polo shirts on boys.  Then again they get so dirty so quickly, that the staple around our house is t-shirts.  I think making a few sleeveless shirts for this summer would be a good idea.

I also have a sewing book from the library "Sewing for Boys", I have had it for many weeks and can’t seem to find the time to make anything from it.  I have renewed it a couple of times, and think that I have expired that option, so I really need to make something from it in the next week.  The pattern I am leaning towards making is called the Treasure Pocket Pants.  They have a large deep pocket for keeping all sorts of things in, I would like to make them into shorts, similar to this.

Well that’s all for today.  Now to find the time to actually sew something!
