Nothing But Knit theme sewn by Skirt Fixation. Fun children's clothing event!

Yesterday we got to share our Nothing But (k)Net look for the Project Run & Play week 1 sew along.  We summarized our boy look as follows:

Boys outfits:
Shirts pattern: Oliver + S Parachute Polo

Shirt fabric: Mabel Madison (sold out, try this airplane fabric instead)
Sweatpants pattern: Oliver + S Parachute Sweatpants
Sweatpants fabric: Sweatshirt Fleece Navy Fabric & Sweatshirt Fleece Charcoal Fabric

But we have so much more to share with you, including a deluge of photos!

This is the 3rd time I’ve used the Oliver + S Parachute Polo pattern to make these two boys matching shirts.  I made only one change to the pattern this time; I narrowed the sleeves at the bottom.

The first time I made these shirts, I made short sleeves, so it wasn’t an issue.

When I made them the long sleeved striped shirts, I discovered the wrists were a bit floppy, hence the change.

The contrast fabric on the shirt collars, plackets and pocket is some blue linen from the stash.  Although you can use a knit fabric for these three places on the shirt, I like to use a woven because it helps stabilize these potentially tricky spots.

To help differentiate between the two shirts for dressing purposes, I made the buttons different colors on the two shirts.  David (or Dawg in yesterday’s story!) got navy blue buttons and Baby got white ones.

Do you see the differences in the Oliver + S Parachute Sweatpants?  David/Dawg’s are gray with a blue side stripe and Baby’s are blue with a gray side stripe.

If Baby’s Oliver + S Parachute Sweatpants look familiar it’s because he’s wearing the pair I made his older brother in this blog post in October.

I know they fit him partly because of the elastic around the ankles makes them not too long, but would someone please make my baby’s growth slow down?

I did lengthen David/Dawg’s sweatpants by a couple of inches because while the other pair still fits him, he’s growing too, and it won’t be long until they’re too short.

These boys have been eating, sleeping and playing in these pants.

They must be super comfortable because they barely let me take them off for laundering, and then put them on straight out of the dryer!

Baby has taken to wearing a hat.  He calls all hats “cowboy hat.”  He likes to change the angle to a rakish angle now and then.  Obviously, I’m completely wrapped around his tiny finger!

The boys had so much fun this day with this photoshoot.

Allegra took all the photos, and at one point I saw her laying flat on the ground to get a good shot!  Totally worth it, too.

The lighting was perfect, and she edited all the photos for the grunge/street scene photos too.

I love how the whole photo essay yesterday turned out so artistically.
