Quad T-Shirts for a Boy

{S is for Sewing e-book, featuring the Quadrilateral T-shirt}

The seamstresses at Sewing With Boys have released their second e-book that focuses on back to school – which thankfully for me is only a few weeks away.  The complete bundle is 4 full patterns, inspiring articles, and some extra goodies.  And best of all, it’s made for BOYS.  You know, those kids that don’t like the ruffles and bows and cutesy buttons that we like as embellishments on our handmades.  The Sewing With Boys’ speciality is making it fun to sew for our little guys, while making it fun for our little guys to wear what we make.  S is for Sewing is the latest e-book that does just that.  I stitched up 4 shirts for my 2 year old cousin using the Quadilateral T-shirt pattern that is one of 4 patterns available in the e-book bundle.

The t-shirt PDF pattern comes in sizes XXS-L (2/3-10/12).  It is made in knit fabrics with binding at the neck and the sleeves.  The special feature for our guys is the little pocket right in the front to hold their small treasures.  The casual fit and asymmetrical design works well for the boys.  And while I am here to promote sewing for the boys, this t-shirt would be just as awesome for our girls too!

Because the t-shirt pattern is called the Quad T, I interpreted that to mean I should stitch up 4 shirts for my little cousin.  So, that is what I did stretching one of my favorite fabric lines to mix and match the prints with solids.  The print fabrics are organic knits from Serengeti by Birch Fabrics.  The elephants, birds, and giraffes are just TOO CUTE!  By mixing the prints and adding the solid knits, I think I still have enough for another project coming soon.

Also to mix up the 4 t-shirts, I made 2 shirts with sleeve bindings and 2 with hemmed sleeves.  And then 2 shirts with pockets and 2 shirts without pockets.  I wanted each shirt to be unique and show off the Quad Tee pattern at its best.  Which speaking of the pattern… I found the instructions to be well written and simple to follow with drawings, fitting explanations, and printing and assembling instructions.  The pattern suggests upcycling adult t-shirts for the Quad Tee.  I think that would make some great looking shirts for the little guys.
