We had beautiful weather here last weekend, and all week it's been cold, crummy, and raining. I've been spending some of my time decluttering and going through the boys' clothes, switching sizes to/from the attic, bagging stuff that we just don't want anymore, etc. I came across this shirt that I made for Caleb in 2003:
It's from one of the last issues of Topkids (you can read the pattern review here). I made it from the rayon/linen blend you can get at Joanns.
It was fun to make. I used a fusible interfacing on the collar and cuffs, and it bubbled, but otherwise, I really like the shirt. I'd make the cuffs wider next time.
The pockets are built into the yoke.
Check it out! Caleb in the shirt about a month before he turned 7! He's going to be 12 in about 2 weeks; my how the time passes. Calvin is smaller, so even though he's 8.5, the shirt fits him great.
