I’ve had a terrible time sewing clothes that fit my partner. He’s not particularly odd-shaped, but the times that I’ve attempted (see here, here, here, and here) haven’t worked out very well. They don’t look terrible in photos, but he’s never actually worn them in real life.
I’m back with another attempt to make a reasonable piece of clothing for Brandon. And, I’m getting closer! This is the Finlayson Sweater by Thread Theory, made up in a charcoal ponte from Joann’s.
Back in September, I tried to make a pair of shorts for Brandon. They didn’t fit quite right, so they found a home with my little brother. Now that it’s summer, I decided to give it another go.
This all started when Brandon complained that he needed new shorts at the beginning of summer. He had his cargo shorts from college, but wanted something a little nicer. I took forever to follow-up on this request, and in the meantime he bought 3 pairs from Old Navy. Nevertheless, I still wanted to try my hand at making a pair for him. I used Thread Theory’s Jutland Shorts pattern, after seeing Meg of Cookin’ & Craftin’ make a great pair for her husband.
