I do sew some for Sweet Ethan, although honestly it is much less than I sew for the girls. However, that will change in a few months when I start sewing for another sweet little baby boy!!! Not too much longer now. But I digress. I made Ethan this fun outfit to use as a canvas for a stitch that I demonstrated at our last Smocking Guild meeting. The khaki shorts have both pockets and pleats....a nice combination, I think. The shorts and the shirt go together very quickly and look very polished. I am already planning a few more outfits for Ethan using this same pattern which is Luke by Pintucks and Pettiecoats (my friend Paige).
I think it looks "boyish" enough for this shirt and it also looks great on some preemie bonnets I made that are intended for little girls. I think there are a lot of applications where it would look well-placed and "smart." I enjoy learning new stitches and new techniques. It expands my repertoire and gives me more choices for future projects.
