I altered the shirt onesie pattern, and now it is now big enough for Henry. I used a shirt that I actually made for my husband when we were engaged. I think Henry really enjoys looking like his pops. The print makes me think of a cowboy.

This little cowboy is very wiggly, but looks so studly in his shirt.

I didn’t cut off the cuffs for the sleeves which means the original pleats are still there. The pleats make Henry look like he has the biceps of a bodybuilder. He looks so tough. Especially with his ginormous eyes and wispy hair.

Here you can see the cuff and placket.

I made the yoke smaller like an actual men’s shirt, so that the pleat gives room for arm movement. Henry needs to do his tummy time even when he’s dressed up.

I added elastic to the legs this time which adds a lot to the look. I also have three buttons and buttonholes at the bottom for diaper changing.

This cowboy is ready to sweep you onto his horse and ride off into the sunset.

  1. I wish I'd had some of these when my boys were littler….I hate boy's shirts coming out.

    And it is so well sewn…cuff and placket? You are such an amazing sewist/sewer! (I never know what to call everyone these days…lol.)
