New Wardrobe for Striker9:42 AM
My Striker boy is one year and two months old now and he has grown out of all the store-bought clothes he received as gifts. Drew gave him his first haircut a few weeks ago and he's walking all over the house now. I decided to make him button-down shirts and trousers because he's not a baby anymore, just a little boy.
Striker has extremely sensitive skin so I used the softest fabrics I had. I made the shirts onesie-style so that they would stay tucked in, and so his skin stays covered to avoid the winter rash. I made him five shirts and six pairs of trousers.
With kids clothes I take as many short cuts as is reasonable. For these shirts I did a quick pleat vent instead of a true placket. And to save time on the collar I just cut the stand and collar as one piece. I've always thought my boy was adorable but to see him walking around in button down shirts has got to be one of the greatest things in my life right now.
