His & hers recess raglans:
We'll start with his...because he was so lovely to photograph, what with actual cooperation and all.
Girl Charlee - found here as of this typing, but looks like it's almost gone. The bands are a ribbed knit I got at Joann ages ago.
In stark (three year age) difference, I really thought, for a little while, that publishing pictures of her thrashing about red-faced on the floor was the only way I was going to get modeled shots of her shirt. Then I made oatmeal, she "helped", and I took my shots. Not ideal, but done.
I would have liked to make it long sleeved, but this was an upcycle (really a destruction) of a woman's shirt from Old Navy clearance and I just couldn't make it work with the amount of fabric I had.
I'm not in love with this shirt. There's something that doesn't sit right with me about the way this pattern comes together for me - especially the necklines (I'm hoping his shrinks up a little once washed). I don't think it's the pattern because I've seen plenty of lovely versions sewn by other people. Maybe raglans just aren't "me." Who knows. I have two more cut out (for the boy!) to sew up during KCW next week. Then I may retire the pattern. What won't I retire?
Loving how cute this crazy kid makes my crazy (and decidedly not cute) 50's kitchen look.
