Today is day one for Henry’s 2013 Spring/Summer fashion line! It was so much fun to sew a line of clothing because I got to design and sew pieces that coordinate with each other. The design process was really fun! When I first starting sketching and coming up with ideas, I remembered this shirt that I had and didn’t wear that often. It was cool but the colors weren’t me and I didn’t wear it that often. I decided to use this shirt as a base. It had three great colors: gray, white, and chartreuse and then I added red to the collection also.
This shirt is so awesome because it looks like it has tire tracks all over it. I used a pattern from the book Kwik Sew’s Sewing for Toddlers for the shirt and re-used the original neckline. I asked Henry what a lion says, and I captured him roaring.
I don’t know what Henry was doing in this picture, and forgive his chocolate milk spill on his shirt.
The pocket facing on the front pockets is red which ties into the red in the rest of the collection. Oh, and Henry’s shoes are a Christmas gift. They match perfectly with the whole collection!
This outfit is fun and each piece is basic enough to go with the other pieces.
