What advice would you give someone starting this project? Reusing the front band complete with buttons and button holes from the original shirt saves alot of time - I buttoned the shirt fronts together the wrong way (so they lay flat together) and cut out both at the same time to ensure the buttons and button holes would line up on the new shirt.

Wow! Great bit of recycling and a lovely looking outfit for a little boy.

Nice work. Which pattern did you use for your nephew's shirt? I intend to sew one for my cousin's son. He's 7. He's requested for a shirt with a dinosaurs! Boys!

I used kwik sew 3079 but would not recommend this as it is for toddlers sizes 1-4 and the pattern dosn't include a collar band - I drafted a patter piece for this myself. I think that any boys shirt pattern that has the same elements as the shirt Pam teaches should work fine.

Thanks. I looked around and have Burda 9524 in mind. Will wait for a sale!

Hi, Very clever use of materials to be able to save time! Great job on your construction of the shirt and shorts. What a cute outfit for a cutie pie :-)) Can't wait to see more of your creations! Thanks, Pam
