EYMM |Daddy & Me Blog Tour|

Scroll down for english, please!

Para quem mora nos Estados Unidos (pelo menos), o dia do pai está quase a chegar, aqui já sabemos que foi em Março, mas qualquer desculpa é boa para celebrar a parentalidade. E por isso, usei o os moldes Parker’s Vintage Fit T-Shirt for Children & Men, homem e criança (EYMM), e o meu primeiro pensamento foi fazer uma t-shirt para os meus filhos (menina e menino), mas depois olhando para trás, já fiz vários looks mãe e filha, por isso, reconsiderei e acheique também seria divertido fazer um look só pai e filho, e cheguei até isto. 

Father's Day is around the corner for US residents, at least. It already took place in March in my corner of the world, but I feel like any excuse is a good one when it comes to celebrate parentwood. And so I used the Parker’s Vintage Fit T-Shirt for Children & Men pattern bundle (EYMM) and my first thought was to match daddy and both kids (girl and boy), but then I looked back in time, I have made a few mommy and me looks in the past, with the girl. I thought it could be fun to make something just for the boys too, and here's what we got. 


Lancem-me lá uns fogos de artificio, faxavôre! Depois de tantos anos a dizer que queria e fazia, lá costurei qualquer coisa para o namorido (de roupa, isto é). Hurra!!! A motivação veio mesmo de fazer parte deste tour da EYMM Patterns, com o tema Papá & Eu. Por isso, sim, hoje fico feliz.

Someone throw some firework for me please! After so many years meaning to, I finally sewed something (on the garment department, it is) for the hubby. Hurray!!! And my motto was being on the Daddy & Me tour for EYMM Patterns. So, yes, I am happy today. 


Encomendei o meu tecido da Sweet Mercerie porque o esquesitinho do meu marido não gosta de nenhum dos tecidos que eu já tinha em casa. Comprei então esta malha jersey em azulão, e outra em bege, muito parecidas. Gosto muito de ver o meu V. (namorido) de azul, destaca com o cabelo muito preto e olhos castanhos muito escuros, por isso usei o azul como tecido principal da t-shirt dele, e usei um retalho do bege para o bolso na frente. Para o meu S. (filho) usei o bege como principal e o azul para o detalhe do bolso.

I ordered some fabric from The Sweet Mercerie, because my picky husband didn't like any of the fabric I had in my stash. So, I purchased an electric blue slub jersey and a beige with black speckled jersey fabrics. I really like to see V. (hubby) wearing blue, it stands out with his pretty black hair and dark brown eyes, so the blue was used as main fabric for his t-shirt, and I used a scrap from the beige fabric for the front pocket. For S. (son) I used the beige as main fabric and the blue for the pocket detail. 


Ambos os moldes, de homem e criança, foram bem fáceis montar, cortar e rápidos de costurar. Fiz o do miúdo, depois de tudo cortado, em menos de meia hora. Ambos vêm com duas opções de gola. Escolhi a gola em V porque, se bem me lembro, era algo que nunca tinha feito antes. A primeira foi a do V. e não correu assim tão bem, não ficou centrada a 100%. Acredito que a peça da gola deveria ser um pouco mais longa (ou então meu tecido nãp tinha os 60% recomendado, é verdade que como é bastante elástico eu nem fui confirmar), na minha opinião tive de esticar demasiado a gola. O mesmo não aconteceu com a versão mais pequena. Correu tudo perfeitamente. 

Patterns, both men and children's were easy to assemble, cut and pretty quick to sew. I made the kid's one in less than half an hour after I had everything cut. Both come with two collar options. I chose the V-neck option, which if I can remember well, I hadn't done ever before. The first was the hubby's and it is not 100% centered in the front. I think the collar piece should be a little longer (or my fabric didn't have the 60% stretch recommended in the pattern - mine is pretty stretchy so I didn't even check), I had to stretch the fabric way too much in my opinion. I didn't have the same issue with the boy's version. Everything went smoothly and it looks perfect. 


Já com os bolsos foi ao contrário. O do V. ficou muito melhor. Comecei por costurar o do S. com um ponto zigue zague, mas a máquina começou a repuxar o tecido e quando tentei descoser para voltar a coser, não consegui porque o tecido é fino e a tendência era rasgar.
Assim que acabei por tentar costurar o resto do bolso o melhor possível, e para o bolso do pai já usei um ponto direito. A minha sobrinha estava cá em casa quando terminei as duas t-shirts, e quando lhes mostrei a todos as peças ao acabar, a miúda de 8 anos ficou toda entusiasmada e até eufórica quando percebeu que tinha trocado os tecidos nos bolsos. Adorou! Também fiquei muito agradada. Assenta-lhes a ambos na perfeição.

The oposite happened with the pockets though. Hubby's look much better, I started by sewing the boy's with a zig zag stitch, but it started pulling the fabric which is so thick that it made it impossible to unpick to sew again. So I just tried to do it as best as I could and switched to a straight stitch when attaching the hubby's pocket. My niece was staying over when I finished the pieces and showed them to my family. She's 8 years old and was all excited, noticing the matching switched pockets. She loved it! I was very pleased too. The fit on both of them is pretty good and spot on. 


As opções para o comprimento das mangas são também, mas como temos o verão mesmo ai, optei por fazer as mangas curtas, claro. Cheira-me que vou usar este molde mais vezes. Se ao menos o dia tivesse mais horas.

There's also two options for the sleeves lenght, and because Summer is almost here, I went with the short ones, of course. I see more of these in our future. If only the day lasted a few more hours.

    1. Thank you Abbey! I really didn't want to make a big and a small shirt looking the same. So I guess this worked right.
