I must be on a roll....

Yes, I am.  The sleep shirt for my son has been cut out.  I did have to get very creative but I think it will work.  I had to add about 6 inches to the length of this top.  I also, had to change the draft of the sleeve slightly so that I was sure that his hand would go through the sleeve.  I'm hoping that I will have the top finished by Monday.  Let's see if I can really get the machines going.  The serger needs to have the thread changed and the machine that I will be sewing with hasn't been checked since I moved and plugged it back in.  Hopefully, it is working fine. 

After I cut out the shirt tonight, I realized that Vogue had new patterns out.  What's up with the funny poses?  They don't show the clothes at all.  It makes me wonder if the clothes didn't fit the model and that was the only way they could get a picture.  Here are some that I found interesting:

I like both pieces in the pattern.  It is Vogue 1294.  See what I mean about the weird poses.  Does the pants not fit the model? Is the top too wide?

I guess that is the only one that I found interesting enough that I would purchase.  There is another pattern that I liked but you can see the models bra in one of the pictures which tells me that the neckline is really low.  Here's the pic and the line drawings:

This has a really cute neckline.  The pattern number is 1285.

They also had a new men's jean pattern but it looked funny.  Like the rise was too high.  I thought about it for about 2 seconds.  My son is very lean and tall for his age and I have a very hard finding pants.  I have been thinking about sewing them for him.  We'll see.  It may be more efficient to make shorts for him as boys tend to wear their shorts long and I can't seem to find shorts long enough.
