Summer Clothing- “So THAT’S why there has been so much laundry lately.”

G’s wardrobe was seeming a little thin this summer.  Once we hit the stretches of consistent heat, it seemed like he never had enough shorts to make it more than a few days.  As a result, I sewed him up a couple of new pairs.

That second pair was made for a performance we went to at the aerial gym that was “Midsummer” themed, and that impish grin is awful appropriate, since, after I finished the shorts, I found that he had MORE than enough shorts, and the reason he never seemed to have any was because he was changing 3-4 times a day…every time he so much as dripped a bit of water on himself.  Oy.

R also got an outfit for the performance:

I used the same basic idea I did with the tshirt for G’s Batman pajamas and clipped out some images from a sample of Spoonflower’s new microsuede before stitching around the edges.

G’s shorts were both made with the basic sleep short pattern, but I added patch pockets, trimmed with bias tape made from leftover Batman fabric, to the blue pair after he expressed disappointment the green shorts were pocket free.

He’s a tyrant, that G.
