This project is for my youngest, Norman. He wears lots of hand-me-downs from his brothers, so it's not exactly that he needs a lot of new clothes. The problem is that by the time the clothes make it down to him, I am sick of them!!! So this guy probably ends up with more clothes than is strictly necessary.
I designed this outfit after I found the green pants fabric at JoAnn's and fell in love with the color. I knew right away that the pocket detail on the sides of the pants would be a perfect way to do some top stitching to tie the navy from the shirt in with the pants.
Another shirt from Lands' End, and another applique! I really can sew other things besides appliques :) I guess when I started planning things to sew for the fall and winter, I didn't quite realize how many appliqued shirts I would be making!
The pants are flat-front, top stitched with a wide double needle.
And here is the proud owner of the new clothes! Norman gets super excited when I sew things for him. He likes to come with me to the fabric store and plan all sorts of fun things that he wants me to sew for him :)
I have two more projects to show you that I finished up yesterday, and I have high hopes for getting even more done this weekend. Check back soon to see what else I've been working on!
