Something for my Other Half
When my husband had a birthday last month, I thought it would be good to finally sew him something. He does so much for me by putting up with my disaster sewing area and taking pictures of everything so I can share. It's high time I put aside fabric and time for him and not just the kids (or me).
The tshirt is a free pattern over at Burda Style called Pete. The pattern wasn't too difficult and went together well. I spent quite a few hours on it though. I wanted to make sure that the stripes matched perfectly and that the inside seams were nice and clean. No rushing! When I was finished, it looked humungous and I was pretty sure it was going to be a fail. But I tried it on and it looked good on me except for the shoulder width so I was pretty pleased.
This must be his best side, since almost all the pics I took of him looked like this! It's kinda weird that I made one exactly like the pattern picture. I didn't intend to, it's just that this black/grey striped knit was the manliest fabric I had on hand. I love it though - he doesn't have a lot of striped shirts or black and grey ones. I think he loves it too since he wears it pretty often, so I think I'll start trying some more men's patterns. I'd love to hear of any good ones!
