It’s getting really cold here in Michigan. And we happen to live in the snowbelt, so it’s even colder than normal michigan temperatures. My littles have a plethora of summer clothes in their drawers still, but I needed to get something a bit warmer, for fall and winter wearing.
That’s when the Cowl Neck Pullover Pattern was created!
In the process of testing, I’ve been learning about new fabrics that are making their way into sewing rooms, and turning out to be favorites. I’m also finding that many fabrics that I thought were the best options, are just a fraction of what’s available! I still think that a favorite option of mine is to recycle t-shirts or sweaters into my baby wear….But mostly because I like to be thrifty. 🙂

Since I had “BOYS” on my mind when I was creating this shirt, I wanted to make sure that it was a trendy looking cowl that would look great on boys. Nothing floppy that would get in the way while playing legos….but something that would add the warmth and cute factor that this shirt needed.
The pocket. Oh the pocket. When I was making my test shirt, I told Elijah what I was doing. I said, “mommy is making you a ‘pocket shirt’ that you can put things in.” He literally stood by me the entire time I sewed this shirt for him. The whole process took me about 20 minutes, and he stood there, using his 2 year old vocabulary to tell me how much he loved pockets, and what kind of things he would be putting in his pocket.
Boys. Love. Pockets. Enough said.
|Look how much room Elijah has to put stuff in that pocket!|
|Look at this great tester photo – He loves his pocket too!|
Overall, this Cowl Pullover is a new favorite of mine that I am so excited to share with you. It sews up really quick and fits great. I hope that you love it as much as I do.
