He's been asking me for this style of shirt for a while, so I thought it'd be a great birthday gift. I don't know if I, personally, would want my age displayed on my shirt front, but it's just the thing for an eight year old.
The striped fabric and the matching blue are from Chez Ami and the white is from http://www.fabric.com/. I used Ottobre 4-2008-26.
My brand-new serger (my Christmas gift) made its debut on this shirt. Sadly, I was paying so much attention to my serging technique that I made my silliest error yet. I even managed to ignore the giant red flag that the two pieces I was stitching together didn't seem to match very well. I serged a straight line, pulled the fabric out and sat back in confusion and horror - did I just connect the sleeve to the neckhole?
