KCW Day 2 & 3

I have almost everything cut out, but hardly anything sewn up. That's progress though even if I can't show you. I did finish two shirts and two shorts. Both shirts were made from adult shirts so I was able to reuse some hems and neckbands. One pair of shorts were made from a man's button up shirt and the other is just a basic pair of sweatshirt fleece shorts.
This shirt is perfect for a boy during the summer. Henry LOVES being outside so we will be sitting out on lawn chairs often.
I was planning on making harem pants out of a man's shirt like these, but I made the legs too skinny (just like last time. You'd think I'd learn!) So I chopped them off and made them into long shorts. I also added the tab from the shirt to the sides to give it a cool detail. I love that these shorts have pockets and cool details, but I don't have to put much work into them.
I tried get a picture of Henry wearing the clothes, but this is how Henry felt about it.
