Au-some kiddo

So my (adopted) nephew is autistic, and his mom (my bestie) had mentioned wanting to get him some shirts that allude to that so people might better understand his behaviors. Well, as fate would have it, I had already preordered some autism fabric online weeks before. Fast forward to Tuesday, when I cut this out.
It's a Max Raglan by Max & Meena patterns, it was a dream to sew and I see many more of them in my future. It's making me want to get a grown up raglan pattern for me. So much easier than trying to ease sleeve corners.
I also finished a pair of sleep shorts for hubby, the legs aren't that lopsided, it's just positional. These are actually a free pattern on 5 out of 4 website. Simply called Pajama pants, it was an easy pattern to follow and went together quickly. Especially with my serger finishing off the inner seams.
I will say that the flannel made me more appreciative of my knits, the hems were a pain. Forgot you have to double fold wovens so they don't fray. Next pair is going to be with knit, just to see which he prefers. Especially since these are a little big on him, if he decides he likes this type better the next pair will have to be a medium.
