I also picked up a little knit fabric to make another that matched his favorite shorts. I bought half a yard, which made for an inexpensive shirt ($2.50), except that I realized (after I made it, of course) that I cut it out the wrong way. The fabric stretches vertically instead of horizontally like it's supposed to. It does fit him, but it's a little snug getting it on. I may have to buy a little more fabric next time to make sure I can cut it out the right way, but it will likely still be cheaper than buying a shirt from the store - plus I get the fun of making it!
|I'm not sure what those spots were, since this was right after I finished making it, but they came out in the wash! =)|
I definitely recommend this pattern! It was quick and easy and fit great! The neck ribbing seemed a bit small to me, so I cut it a couple of inches longer, which still is a little snug around Ben's head, but other than that, the fit is perfect. I'm hoping to get a couple more shirts made for him, but these are a great start!
