Well, this is the last of the summer sewing for my little guy.  I'm hoping he will wear these over plain long sleeved t-shirts this winter, too.  I'm pretty sure he will be up for it. Smiley  I used snaps for the closures on these - I have a ton that I ordered this spring so I used a bunch of different colors.

The shirts are from 3/09 Ottobre Design magazine.

Caveman




Matching shorts - showed these before but thought I would show the whole outfit. Smiley



Monsters and Aliens - I'm not sure they were supposed to go together, but the colors match so well.  



Knights



Thanks for looking and any comments!  Grin

Thanks!  Yes, the pants were from Ottobre 3/09, BUT I did a different pocket.  So the shape of the pants are the same, but I made the front pockets to be interior instead of a pocket sewn over the top.  I like them better this way.

Wow! You did such a nice job! I love seeing creative sewing for boys. It is so hard to find good things for boys. I like your use of the snaps. I avoid shirts since I hate buttons! Thanks for the idea. I have some fabric my son wants a shirt out of that I have been avoiding! Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing with us!

Wow, these are so cute! I absolutely love how my son looks in button up shirts, but I hate dealing with the buttons! Snaps are an awesome alternative I never considered! Major kudos!

If you have specific questions on construction, just let me know.  They both are basic patterns that you should be able to find in most of the big pattern companies, too.  It's good to get step by step instructions on doing your first shirt.  The collars and the front are a little difficult to get at first.  At least these don't have a collar stand, since that makes it a little more difficult.  I've made so many shirts over the years that it isn't too hard once you get the hang of it.

Wow those are great. I love the idea of using snaps. When I learn to sew more I may have to make some like this for my son.
