I chose to make a sweatshirt for Mr A using a vintage pattern I had here (actually I strugle to call it vintage since I was at school when it was first released) and some fabric I picked up at the Sallies for $4, can't go too wrong really. Of course I couldn't find any ribbing to match so had to go for a contrast but since this was only ever going to be for round home who really cares.
So here is the pattern I chose and I decided to make him a size 4 which was the smallest in the version of the pattern I had. I knew this was a bit of a risk as he is pretty skinny but in actual fact it turned out ok. Overall I was surprised at how well this did actually fit, the only point I would make is the hood is huge and really just for decoration.
So without further ado here is the sweatshirt.
And finally on the boy. What is it about 5 year old boys that they can't stand sensibly for a photo?
