I’m not sure I’ll ever get tired of sewing for Ollie. I definitely enjoy all the girly outfits, don’t get me wrong, but sewing for this stud is always enjoyable. Maybe it’s because the pieces always go together quickly (and I never have to ruffle or gather anything!) or maybe it’s because I adore the print mixing on him. Whatever it is, I hope it doesn’t stop anytime soon.
The Adventure Tee will definitely be a staple in Ollie’s wardrobe. I adore everything about this shirt! It’s a great little unisex tee that’s got so many options, and is seriously so, so easy to make.
I made the 18m size because he’s square between the 12 and 18 month sizes. I knew it wouldn’t be huge on him, so I made the bigger size for longer wear and I’m so glad I did! I used some blue on blue stripe knit I’ve been hoarding in my stash since before he was conceived. It’s crazy soft and is such a great color on him. We’ll be layering this bad boy when the weather cools off for sure!
I’m a huge fan of Andrea’s patterns. From start to finish they’re such a professional, easy experience. Printing is fast, the pattern pieces go together like a dream, the instructions are spot-on, easy to follow, and packed full of helpful tips! I know I’m always going to have a good time sewing her patterns, and the Adventure Tee is no different.
I know I’ve gone on Ollie picture overload, but I just totally adore this age. And seriously–elbow dimples. Is there anything better?!
I paired his tee with my Oakley shorts sans pockets. I really still completely love the cut and fit of these shorts. They’re so great, and I’m not just saying that because they’re my pattern! I mean, look at that bum! I wish I looked that good from behind.
You should definitely go grab these patterns while you can get them bundled! I promise, this tee delivers in every possible way. Check out the Pattern Anthology website for all the details.
