For Boys’ Week this week I was hoping to finish up the shirt that I was supposed to make Isaac for his Christmas outfit. The shirt pattern was cut out and ready to go. So, yesterday afternoon I sewed it up…..well, to this point. And then I decided to try it on.
It is ginormica. As in, huge. As in, it might fit my ten-year old. Okay the sleeves will probably be a bit short, but other than that it would totally fit him. And it was cut out in the size 3.
Lesson learned. Next time measure the kid before you start cutting out the pattern.
Oh well, I guess I have some time to finish it before he can wear it. And at least the fabric is pretty classic for when he will fit in it, in oh, about 3 years.
Anything like this happen to you lately?
P.S. Boys’ Week voting is up…..go over and see all the boy-sewing-genius and then vote for your favorite!
