Daddy and Me EYMM Blog Tour

Woohooo another EYMM blog tour!  I seriously love doing these blog tours!  It motivates me to sew up something I've thought about but never managed to make time to do.  Don't forget to read all the way through for the sale information at the end.

This time I got to sew for my little boy and my husband.  Poor kid doesn't get nearly as much sewn for him as his sister:(  He's super appreciative though of anything I make for him, what a sweetie.  I'm a horrible wife and have never sewn a shirt for my husband lol!

This time around I made the Parker Vintage T-shirt by EYMM.  This is available in kid and adult sizes NB-18 and XXS-6XL.  It has long and short sleeve options and crew or v-neck option and a optional chest pocket.

I originally tested this t-shirt for Kymy, and my son has been wearing the tester shirts at least once a week since then.  They were starting to get short so I bumped him up a size and made a 6 for him.  He's tall and skinny so he needs the length.  The fit is perfect on this shirt, not too baggy not to loose.  I took his measurements and he was in the Large on most measurements so I went with that and I love the way it fits.  In my opinion better than a lot of store bought shirts.

I used a fun custom knit panel with BumbleBee on it and coordinating Transformers fabric for the sleeves and top of the front bodice.  To coordinate my husband's shirt I did a contrasting pocket out of the Transformers fabric.  I thought this was a fun way to coordinate but still look adult.  To make the panel fit I had to add material to the top of the panel which created a fun color block look at the top.

Grab this pattern while it's on sale, you won't be disappointed!  The fit is spot on and it's such a quick easy sew! This is my go-to pattern when I need a great fitting t-shirt pattern.  Bonus-the size range is incredible and the directions in measuring for the adult sizes are very detailed to ensure a perfect fit.
