boy's shirt







shirt - made by me

in 5 years of sewing
i made only few things for nikola
(some of them i even blogged about
here, here and here)
but i made countless dresses for myself
as well as bunch of tops and skirts and pants
and coats and swimsuits and undergarments
and just about everything
..
one day it struck me
that maybe i’m selfish
maybe i should make more stuff for others
not just those that pay me for that
but for the people that matter to me the most
for those that are always there, no matter what
for those that never ask me to sew for them
..
so i made this shirt..
never made a boy’s shirt before
but i guess there is not much difference there
it’s just a shirt, only a bit bigger
and with buttons on a wrong side
..
kind of liked making it
i guess it feels good being selfless..
now the plan is to find some crazy printed fabrics
and make bunch of boy’s shirts!

  6. Lovely! I´m very into sewing for others right now (My cupboard is about to burst, karma has nothing to do here :) but there are not a lot of male patterns out there. I´m going to try the Negroni from Colette patterns and see how it goes. Your boyfriend must be very happy with this one!

    1. thanks, merche.. i'm thinking of trying to make my own male patterns, or at least to modify those that i already have.. i'm lucky to have this issue of burda (where this shirt pattern comes from) with several great patterns.. you can see preview on russian burda site maybe you can find that issue on ebay

  9. This is so beautiful! It just looks so perfect and professional and nice! I resolved just this morning to start something for my dad and my sister this weekend-- I've been doing too much sewing for myself lately.
