This week is Boys Week at Project Run & Play. I didn't have to think long and hard to come up with an outfit for P. This one has been on the list to do since early fall!
Top: I used an Ottobre Design pattern (04/05 #34) for the Hoodie. I made a size 140 but comparing it to other shirts that P wears I ended up adding 2 inches to the overall length. The light colored fabric is a french terry and the darker brown is a merino wool jersey. The pattern does not have a lined hood but I personally prefer having one so I used the merino wool jersey to line it. I also used a fun stitch called the flatlock for the hems and to topstitch where the hood is attached to the shirt. The skater doing a flip kick is from Ottobre Design 01/08. I made it into a freezer paper stencil and used the same paint that I used for M's horse shirt.
Nitty Gritty Details
Pants: I used the Oliver + S Sandbox Pants pattern in a size 8 (the biggest size). I added lots of length and did 1/4" seams instead of 1/2". They are made from a cotton twill. I used the leftover red sailboat print from the Explorer Vest I made for my nephew for the waistband and pocket linings. Knees always wear out in pants (that is if they're not outgrown first) so I reinforced them with another layer of fabric. I had planned on doing a flat fell seam on the outside of the pants but since I was doing 1/4" seams my seams were too narrow. Instead, I did a faux flat fell.
The pants should hold up to P riding his Ripstick...
and playing basketball!
