It's a 2-posts-in-one-day kind of day around here!!
As the 5th and final day of the All About Boys Series, we are offering you one last day packed full of inspiration! I am rounding up all of the Basic Tees I've made in the past year and April & Brooke are sharing their fall sewing plans for their boys. I can't even wait to see what they have planned! They are making me think I should make my own list...

Hi friends!! Welcome to Day 4 of All About Boys! I hope you've been inspired so far, and I hope the next couple of days bring loads more for you! Brooke & April are working on some fun posts today that are positively overflowing with ideas!
As for me, I sewed up another outfit ;) My boy was in desperate need of shorts and muscle tees so I couldn't help it. I have a bit of an obsession with all things b&w lately, so when this outfit idea popped in my head I couldn't go without bringing it to life.

Hey friends!! It's Day 3 of our fun series and my dear friend April of Modern Handmade is showing off her AMAZING outfit! I absolutely love the details she added to the shorts, they are absolutely perfect for her scrumptious little man. And. She made SHOES!! She's my hero :)
Head over to read her post, you don't want to miss it!

A little while ago a few friends and I started a little conversation on Instagram about sewing for boys and how there is just so much more going on in blogland for girls than for boys. I know we are not the first to have these thoughts, but we decided to do a fun little series for the boys, featuring FREE PATTERNS that are available to all of us!
This time around we are featuring 2 free patterns, The Basic Tee by Dana and the new Oliver & S Sunny Day Shorts. Those of us participating in the series all have boys of different ages so you will get to see how we each customized an entire outfit (or 2!) to fit our boys! It's going to be so much fun you guys!! Hop over to Modern Handmade (April), Oliver's Fancy (Brooke) and Our Family Four (Erin, who is sitting out this season) and find out a little bit more about the fun ladies whom I'm happy to be able to call friends and are my partners in crime for this series!! :)

Thank you all so much who voted for me in the Flip This Pattern fun! Congrats to Marte who won the viewers choice award, it was much deserved!
Along with the Charlie Flip, I felt the shirt needed some cute little chambray shorts and I turned again to my current fave girls' shorts pattern, The Clover Shorts.
