FO: Dinosaur Shirt

Wee Man is still obsessed with dinosaurs so when I found bright happy dinosaur fabric I thought it would be perfect to make a shirt for him. The pattern is Burda 9792 which was the only dress shirt pattern I found that went small enough for a small 2 year old when I first used it a couple of years ago. The pattern has no collar stand, and uses self-facings for the button bands (rather than attached ones) but does use sleeve plackets (so fiddly on the tiny sleeves). Overall the shirt is not too tricky to put together, the sleeve caps need quite a bit of easing to get smooth but otherwise it’s pretty straight forward with enough detail in the pattern pictures to work things out. It’s going into hiding for his birthday now but I hope he’ll like it.
