Jed's turn again.
Another shirt, another rugby.
He knows what he likes!
And he likes a pink shirt.
When he chose this BullRush cotton shirting I questioned another pink shirt?
Why not? Was his response.
I have tried several different shirt patterns trying to find one that is just right for a precious piece of Liberty Capel I bought him a few years back. I think we have found it.
It needs a few inches length to the body and the side vent lowered a little but it has a tailored but well eased fit that will suit a fine lawn well.
I am quite excited.
His other request? Another rugby.
Evidently, mine are nicer then the purchased ones.
Another Kwik Sew vintage pattern with the best tab front instructions I have ever used.
Unfortunately, this is the last of my rugby knit and the seller doesn't have any more.
I used a linen/cotton blend for the collar and tab front, interfacing both collar pieces for extra body.
Jed really liked the tape trim I used last time so I did it again.
This time with some white tape.
I used red stitching on the white rubber buttons to match it up.
Same sleeve stencilling.
I was tempted to use red ink but Zara talked me off that ledge.
'Do you want him to look like Santa's little helper Mum'?
Jed's next sewing turn will be a little scary.
Not only will I be cutting into $100 worth of Liberty but he wants me to try my hand at making him jeans!
Its nice to know he has faith in me (gulp)
