Hello everyone! We’ve been a bit quiet over here on the blog lately, but I’m back today with a new release from Sofilantjes. I’m always looking for fun shirts for my boys to spice up their wardrobes. My boys prefer to wear t shirts and pants every day so the Regem is a great way to mix up their wardrobes a bit.
The Regem is a basic long or short sleeve t shirt with two different views. View A is a basic t shirt with no options. View B, which I tested, is a color blocked version. There’s color blocking on the shoulders, yoke, and the bottom of the sleeves.
I tested the size 10 for my 10 year old. One of my favorite things about Sofilantjes patterns is the vast array of sizes. Patterns go from 12 months to size 14. I estimate my 10 year old has several more years of wearing these patterns! I used gray cotton lycra from Peek a Boo Pattern Shop (which is currently out of stock) and this super comfy plaid cotton lycra from Raspberry Creek fabrics. I also used my coverstitch to add some detail to the hem and topstitching of the color blocked sections.
Even with the color blocking, the Regem is a fast sew. I love the way the color blocking on the shoulders looks like a raglan, but with set in sleeves instead. I already have several more versions of the Regem planned for my other kids!
Hello, dear readers! Thank you for joining me on my stop on the book…
