Sew You Had a Boy with Feather’s Flights

We’re very excited to have Heather from Feather’s Flights as our Sew You Had a Boy guest this month! I follow Heather’s blog regularly, and if you are sewing for a boy I highly recommend you do too! If you’re not sewing for a boy, then tune in for the sewing for women and great inspiration for using your fabric stash along with upcycled materials. 

2T Romper From T-Shirt

I am so excited to be here today! I love spreading and sharing the love about any boy sewing projects, especially because I have a cute little guy of my own. This is such a fun boy series!
Well, I’d like to tell you a story. My bother gives me a lot of his old t-shirts that he doesn’t want. He gave me an awesome monkey face shirt. This monkey shirt was THE inspiration to my t-shirt romper pattern and tutorial post from last year. I loved the idea of a little boy running around in a shorts romper with a huge monkey face on his belly. I didn’t use it originally because the face was so big that I would have had to cut off a lot of the sides to make it the smaller size. 


Last fall I made a 24 mos/2T romper pattern because my readers asked for it but forgot about it quickly because Henry wasn’t even close to that size. Well, the summer here has already started off as a hot one, and Henry needs some easy, cool rompers to get him (and me) through the summer! I was finally able to used the monkey face without cutting it up!

This is Henry’s hilarious face he likes to do during dinner. He puts his whole body into it! I did change the this romper a little by overlapping the front over the back. I used a small/medium sized shirt and the shoulder seams were showing on the back overlap part. It does make the back gap a little, but hopefully Henry will grow into it this summer.

I used some orange snaps for the inseam and some awesome plaid for the facings. I would love to see this pattern with contrasting sleeves or something! Here are the links to the two pattern sizes and the tutorial:
