Week #3, Mad for Plaid!

It's week #3 over at Project Run & Play, and this week's theme is "Mad for Plaid"!

To be honest, my first thought was ick. I hate plaid! But after browsing Joanns once or twice, I actually found several plaids I loved!

Then to come up with what to make. Nothing I could think of seemed original. So I decided to stop trying to be different, and just make something that my little boy could wear... so that's exactly what I did.

I wanted to make him a shirt he could wear for the holidays, but I didn't want a collar. So I opted for this cute "mandarin" style button down, from the tutorial I found here. I *mostly* followed her instructions, and I followed my machine's manual (and also some helpful tips from Dana here) to make my first buttonholes ever! Piece of cake! 

Without further delay.. the Parker Plaid Button Down! (With removable bow tie.)

That shirt is perfect for a dressier look and he's just a doll!
Nice work.

Great shirt...and I'm a totally supporter of "mostly" following the instructions...on almost any pattern I make I only barely follow any instructions!
