A long time ago when Anne-Sophie read a blogpost of mine, and saw that I had ordered the Palermo pattern, she asked me if I would sew one for Tim's nephew. It was meant to be a birthday present for when he turns 3 years old.
Of course I couldn't turn that down and this is how it ended up. It's tomorrow that Linus will celebrate his birthday, so I thought that I would take a few pictures of it before it gets wrapped up and given away.
When we bought the fabric for Anne-Sophie's dress, she found a lovely pale blue linen for the Palermo shirt. And somehow this kind of fabric is the perfect one for the pattern. I can easily picture it in white linen as well, worn with jeans and little brown feet.
Or perhaps it would look great in white and grass green Gingham. I would love that!The patterns has some smart details - and I'm crazy about cool and simple details (which you probably have heard me say before!)
You just unbutton the 2 tiny press studs which are hidden under the shoulder pieces - right there under the pointy part. If you look real hard, you can see the press studs in the closeup photo above.
I hope that Linus and his parents will like the shirt. I think that the fit will be perfect for a happy and active 3 yeard old. Lots of freedom to move and no tight fit.
But I do think that the racing set which Tim and Anne-Sophie are giving Linus as well, will be the top spot of the day. And that's exactly the way it should be...
