Monday I shared my plans for Sam’s fall module and today I have the finished pieces to show you!
For the ‘topper’ in this module I made a Samson Sweater by Love Notions. I made the size 2T from this sweatshirt fleece I bought earlier this year. I added some faux leather details and after a struggle with the neckband and cuffs (due to the stretch of the fabric, not the pattern itself!) I found a dark navy double knit that worked pretty well. I plan on making Charlie a matching sweatshirt! This fabric is really warm and this is a great layer to throw on when it’s not quite necessary to have a big coat but I want the little guy to stay warm.
The next two shirts also happen to be Samson Sweaters, but only because this pattern was so cute and simple to sew up! I love the fit of it. This blue and white stripe is a lighter weight french terry and I thought it would look great in version B with the longer hem line and hoodie attached.
This grey and yellow cozy sweatshirt was a perfect match for this sweatshirt- I literally had just enough fabric to cut it out and was able to use some scrap yellow sweat shirting for the contrast bands and pocket.
I want to make Sam and Charlie matching button down shirts and I love how this one from an Ottobre pattern turned out! This fabric is really soft and I was able to repurpose some buttons from an old shirt of Chris’. Shirts take a little longer to make than a sweatshirt, but I sewed this up in a nap time and even with the limited Ottobre instructions, it was fairly simple.
I only made Sam one pair of pants, he just didn’t really need two right now!, and I used another Ottobre pattern that had a knit waist band and cuffs to make these little cozy khaki pants.
Sewing up these little clothes was so much fun, I think I squealed after every make, they’re just so cute. Sam has already worn a lot of these and I love having warm layers to pull out every day. All of these pieces work well with most of the other things in his closet so it makes getting dressed every day really easy!
Next week I’ll be starting on my 9 year old son’s fall module, follow along to see how it goes!
