OT18 |Hickory and Spice Henley|

One Thimble 18 is out and I got to sew along for the releasing blog tour. I was so happy to find a boy pattern that I loved and fits right into the style I like to sew for my little one. Actually, this issue - as always - comes with a bunch of cute patterns, but I'll admit both of my favorite ones are boy patterns. 

So, yes! I got to sew the Hickory and Spice Henley, a pattern by Orange Daisy Patterns. It's the first time I sew anything from this brand and I was happily impressed. I believe I may have mention my love for notches on patterns, haven't I? A designer that goes a little further and adds the right notches to their patterns has my full respect! And that's what happened when I got to work with this pattern. So many notches, and such nice, detailed instructions/ilustrations. 

I made a straight size 3 for my boy and it fits him so well, I was surprised, he's usually a little bit under that. This boy is extremely hard to photograph because all he wants to do, all the time is run, run, and then run some more. If not running then rolling on the grass will do (as picture below confirms). I did get a few nicer shots, but it was me and hubby shooting at the same time, and sister trying to help, and we took hundreds of them, one of us would get a nice one, right?!

I just love everything about this one. It's been a while since I felt this happy about anything I made. It is true. I love the design, I love the henley closure, which by the way is the second one I made - ever - and went so much better than the first, I guess the tip shared for less bulk was a great one. 

I used snaps as closure but you can use buttons or anything else, there are a few suggestions included in the pattern. I just figures it'd be easier for us, everything has to be extra quick with this little man here. 

My fabric was refashioned from an old shirt I got from my cousin, in a huge pile of clothes. It was fully lined and I loved the lining so much I kept this for a few years, sitting there, waiting for the right project to come along. The outer piece was quite damaged, because it had been worn for work, but the lining was quite fine. I used the lining body to make the new shirt, and for the sleeves I used the outer sleeves for a bit of color blocking (this pattern is great for that by the way, with the shoulders detail and the placket, also a ruffle hem in the girls options). 

I feel like I need to make him one in all the sleeve options available, and also make the girl's version for his sister. Ajaire made the cutest one for her daughter and got me inspired to sew my daughter one too. I will probably do mine in very different colors, but I still find that one so cute! And now, well you know, be nice, visit and comment everyone else in the tour. It's worth it! Here's all the stops for you:








OH, and remember how I said my two favorite patterns were boy ones? Well, I got to test another pattern featured in the magazine. It was the Super Tough Jeans by Suco by Susana and I SO LOVE THEM. Why didn't I blog it though? Well, the size range of those starts at size 3, and since I tested it in an early stage, a few months ago, size 3 was a bit too big on my tiny 3 year old. I haven't tried it on him lately, but I have to, and if they fit, be sure I'll be posting about it too.
