First there was the first-day-of-school shirt. It's a basic camp shirt, actually from a pajama pattern.
I made a size 4, which seemed reasonable given the listed measurements on the pattern and Ben's measurements. Well. It's rather small, probably won't fit in the spring. Ben picked the fabric himself (I wanted madras) and I cut it out when we were at the beach.
So when I made flannel pajamas for Ben, I made them a size SIX.
The hope here is that these jammies will last for at least another winter. Look, I finished the sleeve and pants hems with tidy bias tape so that when they're turned up, they look nicer.
These pajamas and the first-day-of-school shirt are giving some real joy to a little boy and his mom, let me tell you. His quilt is still inching through the mom shop, though, and may not be done in time for quilt weather.
