It is rare to see tests called for boys patterns. It is even more rare to find a pattern for a boys woven (not a knit tshirt type) shirt that DOESN’T button down the front. Rarer still? Something cute and different that a boy will actually WEAR. Allison knocked it out of the park with this one!
This is my older son in my test version of this pattern. It comes in full of 3/4 sleeve lengths, with TONS of possibilities to play with prints and colors between the pieces. And the details… I LOVE the details!
He absolutely LOVES it. He did some playing in it and said it was comfortable and moved well with him. I can also see this style being nice for school. And even church or special occasions in solid more formal colors (or even all on solid color). But the playability in it was huge. If he can’t move in it, he won’t wear it. So this was great!
He even got a couple of goofy ‘jump shots’ in that he INSISTED on to make sure he could lol
And then there was the tree climbing…
Overall, it was a fairly simple sew, although a tad time consuming with the detail work, but in my opinion TOTALLY worth it. I already have requests from him for a couple more and my younger son wants his own as well, so I figure it won’t be long until I’m a pro at it!
The pattern will be live and available for sale by the end of the week, so be on the lookout! You’re sure to see TONS of these around this fall! Here’s the link to the shop where you will be able to find it:
