BOY OUTFIT .....

As you know i dont make outfits for the boys but i was asked to make a boyish coat for a no nose boy so i thought id try and make a shirt to go with it and some trousers so it could be a complete outfit ....
i drew the shirt pattern but when i started sewing the collar realised that unless i wanted an elvis vegas style shirt i had to make a smaller collar , im pleased with how it turned out with the slightly rounded bottom bit but i think if i make another i may make it a bit wider and slightly longer , the plan was for it to do up to the neck but that didnt happen ....




the trousers are just standard elasticated waist that i make all the time .....



I made the coat out of thick grey wool and lined it in the same fabric as the shirt, i could have made it a bit bigger though as the gotz are a bit chunkier , i found it a bit odd sewing on poppers and buttons on the opposite side than usual, i felt clumsy like i was doing something backwards ...





All i think looks quite sweet until i put the hood up , yes the gotz are bigger but i forgot the no noses have larger heads and this one loads of hair so yes the hood goes up but i think he may faint from being strangled if left up for very long .....

  2. What a great outfit Sarah. I love this shirt great style and fabric, I like that it's open at the neck. I think the hood is a good size it will help keep his hair in place! Those no nose boys do like to have it sticking out all over the place.
    A fabulous boys outfit..people will be wanting more...... :)xxx

  6. I think it's a lovely outfit Sarah, one that any self respecting young Gregor would be delighted to be seen in! It's boyish and works perfectly on your sweet Gotz boy!

  7. It's wonderful, Sarah. Bertie is not allowed near the laptop until after you post again, though - can't have these little guys all demanding a winter jacket from you or your regular, girl customers will be very upset! Jenni x
