PR&P Tutorials, Week 3 – Baby Boy Button Up

Week Three for Project Run & Play was ‘For the Boy’. With my son being only 3 months old, my entry was for the Baby Boy.

I had recently purchased a small stash of Sarah Jane’s Children at Play fabric, which made it an easy decision to make a super cute button up for the little man in my life.

Using a 3 month shirt I had received as a gift for pattern sizing info, I created this button up pattern for a 3 – 6 month old baby.

Front pocket detail and collar, as well as a back center pleat, gives this little look high sophistication. And the button up front makes it easy to get wobbly heads into and out of the shirt when dressing – lol.

For the colder months, I gave the shirt some longer sleeves by upcycling some of my baby’s newborn size knit leggings. But the tutorial shows you how to use any knit to add to the arm sleeve – for this faux long sleeve T shirt look.

This will make the perfect baby present for the littlest man in your life!

I absolutely love putting it on mine…

Even if he has yet to be wowed by my sewing prowess….

    So so cute! I envy your creative genius of using leggings as sleeves. I also need to meet this little guy who has already perfected the Blue Steel look…let’s play soon!

    Do you know what seam allowance you use? I am making this and the collar isn’t matching up with the neck, the collar is too short. But I’m wondering if i used too small of a seam allowance so my shirt is wider than it should be maybe. ..

    Thank you for the pattern and tutorial!! I’m sewing one up as we speak – one question though. You give directions for the button placket once. Do I repeat for the second side? I imagine so, but don’t want to make an oops. Also, do the button placket and collar need interfacing?

    This is so cute! I’m going to make it up in a flannel Avengers fabric I found on sale, and make a pair of your baby boy snap cargo pants to match – we’ve got friends who’ve just had their first baby, and the dad is a bit nerdy like us, so some Avengers pjs seem like the perfect option! Thanks so much!
