Five years have flown by, and now my boy is ready for Kindergarten! When Mie from Sewing Like Mad came up with the idea for this series and asked for participants, I was all over it. I love sewing for my boy, and starting Kindergarten is a big deal, so why not celebrate it with some new handmade clothing?!
Tobias has been attending a Montessori school for the past two years (which he absolutely loved), so school isn't something new to him. This year, his Kindergarten education will be a little different, though, in that he will be both in school AND homeschooled. He'll be attending a private Christian school a couple days a week, and the rest of the time, he will be educated at home. He's super excited about the whole idea (and so am I!).
Because he'll be wearing a uniform when he's in school, I wanted to make Tobias something very comfortable to wear when he's learning at home. So, I got busy drafting a retro-inspired sweatsuit and a few Recess Raglan Tees (by See Kate Sew)...and voilà! This boy's ready for Kindergarten!
(Psst...I'm going to be releasing the sweatpants as a free pattern in sizes 12 months to 9 years after the E&E Facebook reaches 3000 likes...almost there!)
