Since Isaiah has been born, I have not sewn one single thing for him. I mean, I have done a lot of other sewing, but nothing for Isaiah. So, as if I didn't have enough Easter projects going, I thought I'd make him a jacket from this thrift store pattern. I used the only boyish looking fabric I had, which coincidentally is also from the thrift store.
Isaiah was less than cooperative in taking this picture. I wanted him to try it on before I hemmed it. I'm not really sure I'm in love with this thing. Definitely not my favorite thing that he has in his wardrobe. I was planning on putting a white polo shirt underneath it with some khaki pants. Gosh, that just sounds so super preppy! The pattern shows a much cuter version. Maybe if I had a different fabric I'd like it better. Oh, what to do, what to do. The pattern also calls for buttons. I'm not sure if I'm going to do that. What do you guys think? Any ideas on spicing it up?Why is it that they have a million cute patterns for girls and like only 2 for boys? It just seems so unfair! I'd like to dress my little boy up too!
