Christmas Concert Shirt for Lou

Dec 12, 2015

Louis’ school had their annual Christmas concert yesterday.  Talk about adorable.  The two youngest classes were the only ones in this particular concert, which made it especially amazing for us because it was short, sweet, and full of Christmas cheer.

It was impossible to send Louis up on stage without a new shirt.  IMPOSSIBLE I SAY!  I stayed up late one night, after Bennett and Louis went to bed, to sew up a new top for the little dude.  And I kinda puffy heart it.

Doesn’t he look crazy handsome?  AH!  I snagged this reindeer fabric a few months ago at JoAnns, with a shirt like this in mind.  It turned out better than it looked in my head.  I especially like that I did a contrasting back yoke in a Christmas plaid.  Squee!

I used the Patterns for Pirates Lumberjack shirt (which I’ve used a ton of times already and have blogged HERE, HERE and HERE.)  Because it’s meant for a looser fit, to work as a jacket, I actually used a size 4T width and a 6T length.  I think I could have even gone a little slimmer for my skinny boy, but the fit still worked just fine.

Plus, look at how beautiful he is.  Seriously.

I actually ended up hacking the sleeves, to give them a rolled up look.  I’m fairly certain that Louis is a mini-version of Dwight Schrute sometimes.  Mostly when it comes to button-downs and long sleeved shirts.  He rolls and pushes his sleeves up allllll the time.  Maybe they restrict him too much?

Also.  I need to share these pictures just because they are SO Louis.  The first is after Bennett coached our sweet, sweet boy into being a butthead and mocking “my pose” for pictures, haha.  The second, is me asking Louis to be sassy.  Haha.  Oh this boy.

I wrote up a mini-tutorial on how to achieve this look with the Lumberjack shirt sleeves.  You can find the tut and see Lou’s sweet face on the Patterns for Pirates blog HERE.  Go check it out!  And then make 10,000 shirts like this.  You know you want to!
