He is 6 months younger than HBI so I let him pick out the fabric and of course be my try-on model…(little does he know that I’ll be making a second one of these for him..!!)
Last night after the final hemming, I asked him “so do you think Cass will like it?”…and his oh-so-sweet-make-yer-momma’s-heart-melt response was “I think any boy would like that Mom”.
What I learned:
1) be careful not to catch multiple layers of cloth under the needle….(!)
2) When the pattern doesn’t make sense, just make it up. The whole neckline/attach the hood / front facing part was a bit of a nightmare.
3) I can do this in about 6 hours from cutting fabric to finishing hem. I found out sewing is one of the few things that I can keep my eyes open past 10 pm for.
