My current favorite boys pattern is on youcanmakethis.com  the bowling shirt by CarlaC dolly designs.  It is so cute and can look tough or sweet depending on the boy's age and your fabric choices Smiley

I've been thinking about this too.   My boys like me to sew for them, and I try to make it "even" since I have girls too...   

I recycled some men's clothes into a faux double layer sleeved hoodie, using one shirt as the main body, and a second shirt for the sleeves and the liner of the hood.   He loves it.  Smiley    I'm also going to make a short sleeved button shirt out of some bright red/flame print fabric for my other son.   I'm also thinking about some plain tees with reverse appliques.

I'll definitely be making a few more of the faux-layer hoodies, as they're so easy, and in style right now.   Zip-up hoodies, and pullover hoodies are good for fall too.  I just don't like to fuss with zippers unless I have to.  Wink

Cargo pants, if your sons like them, are pretty easy, and some of the straight legged drawstring pants (track pants?) with the stripes down the sides are popular too.

My son is 15 now and I made tons of stuff when he was little.  My favorites were reversible pants and shorts.  Elastic waists and no pockets.  Shirts are fun too.  I mostly stopped when he was turning 5, he was no longer interested in the bright colors by then.  I made them with fabrics that worked together well, for example, flies with frogs or two different plaids, he was up for wearing pretty much anything.

For holidays I made him a Christmas suit and a Easter suit- those were fun.  Back then I was making almost everything the two of us wore though!

I've made him a button down shirt or two since he was older.  And now I make him whatever costume he requires for school, Halloween or Mardi Gras.

Oh they sound perfect as my two year old is a right mucky pup, so reversible is ideal. Be it pants, shots, shirts t-shirts etc. Do you know of any patterns at all ? For anyything boy related thats reversable. I have searched but keep on coming up with girls skirts and dresses. I haven't made anything for my son yet but so eager to have a go. So I would need a pattern or a really good tutorial really. Thanks for any help in advance  Wink

I can't remember which pattern I used but it was one of those with a shirt, pants, shorts etc all in one.  The only thing that mattered was it had an elastic waist and I just doubled up the pants, folding the casing up so there was not a ton of extra fabric at the waistband.

We gave them to friends with more than one child and they wore them until they wore them out!
