So, I've seen this trick that bloggers use when showing a piece of clothing they've made where they tape it to the wall and I'd wondered why they did that. Today, after trying to get my little ham to stand still for even 1 second and only managing the surly above picture for our troubles, I realized, that's why they tape it to the wall.
The pockets got really a lot smaller once I made it 5-sized, but they will still hold sticks, or pens, or something else sharp and pointy, and therefore beloved by my darling boy.
It's made from two different women's shirts and purchased ribbing for the trim. The orange one was actually a henley and I used the rest of the body on a project earlier in the year. After I cut the bottom off, I held it up to 5 and just knew it had to become a little jacket of some kind.
The only issue is that the neck is just too big. The original shirt was a scoop neck and I broke some synapses trying to un-scoop it with no luck. It's awfully cute on him though.
