Here’s some tips for sewing knit fabric.
I used the same fabric for my son and I. It’s a white and blue heavier weight terry knit. I thrifted about 3 yards for a couple of dollars. I used the reverse for mine, so it feels like wearing a soft towel or a robe. I made myself a Perri Pullover, skipped the pockets, and added white faux leather pockets to the front. For my son I drafted a basic raglan sleeve sweatshirt. I also added gray faux leather elbow pads for a nice touch. I used white ribbing for mine and gray ribbing for his. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes.
I had dreams of a smooth photoshoot which would produce gorgeous photos of my son and I that I would cherish and hang on our walls. Well, that didn’t quite happen. Even though he made funny faces, I still love us together and these photos.
I’m wearing thrifted pants, hand-me-down boots, and hand-me-down scarf. My son is wearing a crocheted hat lined with fleece (because he complained it was itchy) that I made. The pants are made by me and the boots are refashioned by me.
I can’t not laugh at his faces. He’s so grown up!
