another baby boy, another oliver + s sketchbook shirt.
unlike my previous renditions of this pattern (here, here, and here) i decided to make this one from a chambray (which I got from stonemountain & daughter on my birthday as mentioned here) for two reasons:
1. it’s this couple’s first baby and chambray is a gender neutral choice. (you know just in case a girl comes along later.)
2. the father of this baby wears a lot of chambray button down shirts, so now they can be twins.
There isn’t anything I can say about this pattern I haven’t said before. it's well drafted, comes together beautifully, and full of fantastic little details. like this little back pleat.
and how cute are these little cuffs?
for the main buttons I went with 1/2 inch mother of pearl ones from the bonjour diy etsy store, which are my go to for classic buttons.
finally a little hand stitched the hem to finish it off.
