Boy's Fall/Winter Collection: KCW Day 4

This week is going by so fast! I've loved it so far and wish I would've participated in other years! I do recommend cutting out before the week starts, so that the week is full of enjoyable sewing. I was able to finish three more things yesterday, woohoo! First, is a blocked asymmetrical Henley. I didn't quite know how this one was going to turn out; I was a little skeptical, but it turned out so great!
I love how it came together and all the fun details. This might be one of my favorites from this collection.
I made a basic pair of pants using Made's free pants pattern. I used some wool pants I got when my grandmother passed away. They have a beautiful herringbone weave. They look a little big for Henry, so I hope they fit. They will be his formal pants for church and nice events.
My other favorite (maybe this whole collection is my favorite!?) is this amazing lion shirt I made yesterday. I was finishing when Henry woke up from his nap. He helped me pick out the eyes (snaps) and had to put it on the second I was done. He was so excited to "roar!" I pieced together pieces for the parts of the face. Then I drew some dashed lines all around for the mane. I'm debating adding some ears too.
Since Henry had to try it on immediately, I got some pictures of him wearing it! On the left he's "roar"ing and on the right he's showing me the lion's eyes with funny eyes of his own.
I love this little face so much! It's a laugh and another "roar!"
Luckily, I also got some pictures of Henry wearing the music shirt and the altered brown jeans.
Which he quickly got dirty with and Oreo, Oreo face, and Oreo hands.
These teal pants I finished awhile ago, but I got some pictures to add to the collection.
Question: Since I'm showing all the items in the collection now, would you still like to see styled photoshoots of the items? Or will you be tired of seeing them?
