So in honoring my son’s request for a “cowboy shirt”, I became rather obsessed with a version in an old black and white of a roots-rock artist. I decided to clone the shirt in this old photo, and as I wait for the chambray fabrics to arrive I put together an oh-so-wearable muslin in homespun:
Hey lovelies! I promised to post pictures of the Western shirt I’m trying to prototype as a pattern. This one here? is for sale. And it’s ON sale. And I posted it to Celebrate The Boy, which I just found out about (thanks, Medrie!).
So anyway, it kinda sucked because I had to take, and then wade through, like four hundred adorable pictures of my son. Nels is currently missing his top front teeth and his resultant lisp is TO DIE FOR. He was sad I told him I planned to (attempt to) sell the shirt, but when I reminded him it was for fundage for the Unschooling Conference he was all on board.
Check out the cute kid, and the cat who doesn’t give a fuck:
Nels’ friend isn’t jealous of the shirt, as far as I know, although this picture kind of makes it look like it.
Speaking of sewing, I have several other items I haven’t yet photographed and uploaded, because I am hoping to no longer take flat photos but use children and/or (locally and handmade) forms. I’m discovering that I’d prefer those kind of displays rather than the flat-photography I’ve done in the past. Let’s hope I can make it work!
