A few weeks ago I picked up this super cute shirt dress that fit almost perfectly. I decided to bring it home and use it as a guide to make some that were a bit longer and (ahem) a bit roomier in the hips. Seems simple enough, right? There weren't even any darts for crying out loud!
So I had a whole two hours to myself one night and just went for it. I had to re-cut only twice for the body, but the sleeves were an unmitigated disaster. Honestly, they're still kinda wonky, but not so much so that I didn't wear it today.
I have two more big men's shirts just waiting for me to wrap my head around this project properly.
We fold his clothes downstairs and instead of throwing them wildly about, Five has started grabbing (too big of) an armload and walking it over to the stairs before realizing that he cannot possibly carry said clothes up the stairs and throws them as far up as possible.
I am so thrilled to have such a helper. Even if it makes more work for me.
