I mentioned before that I already made another Matrix Polo by Made It patterns. I really like the pattern, it's a polo but with a fun twist, a few fun twists. I made it for my oldest. I don't know why I don't sew more for him, he is the one who appreciates it the most.
We went downtown to also photograph a jacket that I made. By the time we were done with the jacket, drove to a different location and found a parking spot, the sun was almost down. The city lights came on and the photoshoot became a bit challenging. I also realized that my shutter speed was way too low, and quite a few of the pictures were ruined by my shaky hands.
For the shirt I upcyled two t-shirts I bought at Target on clearance, plus a t-shirt that I had but never wore. I reused the binding from one of the shirts, instead of a collar. Also, I added long sleeves and cuffs. It looks like there is a wierd stain on the shirt, I assure you there isn't one. He is facing the window and it's some crazy refelction from it. I could have spent more time in Photoshop trying to fix it, but it proved to be a bit difficult and time consuming.
The pattern is great, I wrote more about it here. It's fun and not difficult to make, but it looks like hours were spent toiling away. I will definitely be making more.
Love the wide stripe in the back. Eli loves it and already wore it to school once.
