Hi Theresa ;) Happy to read that you are back sewing with a healed finger. Lennie's response will work ;) I would like to make this pattern up for our eldest DGS but will be spending June getting our biggest client - 14 companies - filed for 2011. Lots of sewing for new DGD Zoey as well. Take care.

:oops: I posted my pictures in the completed projects. I finished them off tonight. I did serging and only machined the hems and buttonholes and buttons, no topstitching at all. They are all packed to go into town on Saturday. Tomorrow night I couldn't sew as that's our night to go see MIL and I can knit then.

Dorothy, I'm glad you enjoyed the movie, Rob quite liked it, I guess it just wasn't my cuppa tea.

Here it is! I'm really happy with it. His mom will probably send a photo of him in it ----------- if it fits Zebra Boy, that is!!!

I usually match pockets but I didn't want to in this case.

Wow is all I can say. You ladies don't mess around. I have my fabric washed and I just finished cutting out all the pattern pieces. I still have to iron the fabric for the shorts. I'm thinking about adding embroidery to the shirt pocket. Something really cool for a 9 yr old boy. Probably safest to let him browse my design library.

Mine isn't even cut yet, Gina. Fabric is washed though and, since I used brown thread on the last project my machines are threaded.
