Gearing up for winter.
There is definitely a chill in the air now here and after a depressing time trying to find my eldest son a "nice" dressing gown (they are either covered in characters, or in camo fabric or skulls which my son hates!) I decided to tackle the problem myself!
It was a fairly straight forward pattern (one I could actually understand!) Butterick B4652. I did the smallest size from the packet which was age 7 (as he will be 7 next year) but as you can see there is plenty of growing room! I left the pockets off as requested by my son.
On the whole I was pleased with it (although I was rushing so it could have been a bit neater) until I was finishing the sleeve. That is when I noticed a fault in the fabric - a line of several holes! I was gutted! This was brand new fabric not a seconds and it has several holes in it! I have checked the rest of the fabric and there are holes in that too. I will be complaining to the shop!
