My little men have recently had a bit of a growth spurt and one of the things they are majorly lacking in is PJ's that fit and they picked some fabric they wanted for some several weeks ago, so when the tester call for this lounge set came out I really had no excuse not to make some for them! They like to match quite a lot so I decided to make them from the same fabric and colours and use slightly different versions so they matched but weren't exactly the same!
It was my Husband's turn for a MeMade sew this time with a raglan style tshirt from Wardrobe by Me*. I love Wardrobe by Me patterns as they produce comfortable stylish patterns which are very well drafted as they are made by a very experienced pattern designer. I hadn't made my Husband anything in a while so it was about time I did really! Being a classic raglan, it lends itself to using more that 1 fabric to achieve the look so it's easy to use panels, large scraps which aren't big enough for entire tees or even custom fabrics with co-ords! I decided to make a new football shirt for him this time but it'll be a pattern I go to time and again for him due to the sleeve options and easy construction.
The newest pattern from my favourite ever PDF pattern maker Itch to Stitch* is this beautiful pleated Paro Cardigan!* I didn't need to think twice before applying to test it, it's the perfect shape to emphasise my body shape whilst being pretty and comfortable too! Absolutely perfect for work, daytime or evening wear!
