New Age (shirts)


I'd mostly managed to forget about it, but digging out these pictures from a few weeks ago reminds me that, yes, we had snow into May.

The boys finally got some new age shirts - their birthdays are in the fall and early spring....better late than never?



In half a year, I'll be putting the number 13 on a shirt. It's funny how fast 13 years have flown. Even funnier is the realization that in 6 years, I'll have four teenagers!

This boys' shirt pattern is an excellent knit scrap buster. It is "Beat T-shirt" (Ottobre 3-2010-35).



And the snow melted......



Although the girls' shirts have different pattern numbers, they are clearly the same shirt in different size ranges. Both have envelope necks and a very slim fit in the waist/hip. They keep pulling on the shirts, so I think the slim fit with the looser bodice must feel strange.


The girls' shirts are "Happy Animals T-shirt" (Ottobre 3-2011-12) and "Anchor T-shirt" (Ottobre 3-2011-37).

  1. These are great! I'm definitely buying this issue of Ottobre; just checked it out on their site. I'm always looking for great shirts to make for my son. I found some great skirts in this issue to for my girls! I'm so glad you posted this.

    1. Yes, there are some nice things in this issue (but I think that about every issue, especially since I have both girls and boys.)

  2. So glad you remembered to showcase these tops. They are great.
    I've just made a coat for my 8yr old niece using YoungImage magazine that I'd love your opinion on when I post it this week. I consider you a very knowledgeable sewer for the little ones.

    1. You're such a nice aunt to sew for your nieces! I think it's more challenging to have a feel for the preferences of kids other than one's own.

  3. You have started such a fun tradition in your home with birthday number t-shirts! Your children will cherish this memory for sure. All of the tees look great!

    1. Thanks! I don't know how long I'll keep up the tradition. Until they inform me they're not interested, I suppose!

      Yes, Minnesota was having quite a complain-fest for a while! (I think we secretly enjoy feeling like we're tough!)
