With the holidays fast approaching, we thought it’d be fun to show a few inspiring images of boy outfits, along with fabric and pattern suggestions too!
Sew a Sketchbook Shirt in a great red and green flannel or a classic blue or white shirting for a comfy but classic layering piece. Check out these real examples – plaid flannel by Kim MacMillan, white by Spool Sewing.
If you’re in a warmer climate, pair the Sketchbook Shirt + Shorts with the Art Museum Vest in a solid color linen or twill and you’ve got yourself a dapper little outfit, just like this one from mcholley1!
Colorblock the Field Trip Raglan in a heavy interlock or felted adult sweaters (go up a size for layering) and throw it over a Sketchbook Shirt with some brightly colored Art Museum Trousers or After School Pants for a modern, casual look.
Or go classically formal with a red tartan Art Museum Vest + Trousers (especially dapper with a white shirt and tie underneath!). The Art Museum pattern would be great in a more casual corduroy or herringbone flannel as well, as shown over at Better off Thread and Pippi1997.
Here are some fabric suggestions found over at Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
Got any ideas to add, or links to share of holiday/formal boy sewing you’ve done with Oliver + S patterns? Please leave them in the comments!
