I really wasn't sure if I would have a chance to join in with KCW this time around but things have come together and so far I'm doing ok, things could still fall to pieces later in the week though ;-)
I have been promising Mr A new togs with this lego fabric since I grabbed it in a destash over a year ago, but hey good things take time. Then along came KCW with a toy theme, and Mr A's current rash top is falling to pieces so I finally got around to it :-)
For the rash top I fell back to my current favourite too pattern, the Fun Tee from Sew by Pattern Pieces. This is drafted as a girls pattern but the fit is so fantastic that I simply altered it to a more 'boy fit' by straightening out the side seams to remove the waist shaping. For Mr A I made a size 5 with 7 length, his measurements were between the 5 and 6 around so I sized down as this is for a fitted rash top. The only other alteration I made was to widen the neckband, although I didn't need to lower the neckline as I thought I might. The neck band isn't sitting too well at the moment but I think that will settle down once it's been wet.
Little Kiwis Closet Skinny Legs pattern as it already has this built in as a pattern option (and I was feeling super lazy). I have also always found these to be a good fit on Miss M and I was hoping they would work here too. I fully lined the shorts (apart from the side panels) with some random leotard lining I found in stash (I assume it came from Mum at some stage). These are a size 5 cut to mid thigh length (I kind of guessed the length as I didn't want really short boy legs but didn't want them to go right down to just about the knee either).
here, it's a fab free pattern from Sew by Pattern Pieces.
