Butterick 3475

I have made this pattern a few times...  It has been my TNT both for short sleeve button down shirts as well as cargo shorts.  I think this is the 6th shirt I've made and I've made the shorts twice.  Logan loves everything I've made from this pattern, so I just keep using it, although now that I have discovered Ottobre, it may be time to retire this one.  It is a little boring.
I actually cut out this shirt in May when I made a Cars themed baby gift for a friend.  I am so embarrassed!!  I generally can't stand having unfinished projects around, but somehow this one kept sneaking by me.  I'm glad I got it finished while it still fits him!
Next up in the queue is another set of scrubs for Mitch, but before that I committed to sew a few things for the Christmas party at my church.  The theme is "A Night in Old Bethlehem", and I will be making a few robes to set the stage.  Should be fun!


  1. What a cute shirt for Logan! Cars has been a big deal, and still is!

  2. Oh, Katie, what a cute shirt, and what an adorable little dressed up tot! They're obviously perfect for each other - I see he loves the CARS!

  3. Cute Cars! I got a lot of mileage out of a little flannel jacket that I made for my nephew from Cars fabric... I think he still wears it and I made it two years ago!

    Although there's really no reason to move away from a TNT that you already have, this issue of Ottobre (3-2006) has some cute boy stuff in what I'm guessing is Logan's size: here's the link to the linedrawing page:

    I buy my backissues directly from Ottobre, it doesn't seem to cost any more than from a distributor and the Ottobre people are incredibly friendly and helpful. Just my two cents! :-)

  4. I think that's the one I've used several times too. I really like your fabric choice!

  5. I have given you an award. Check out my blog to see it.

  6. Smart shirt. I find sewing the same pattern for my son all the time rather boring, but why change when you have a winner - the fabric is a great choice.
