elvis lives



most kids' clothing in the stores is crap, i think. if i had my way, the kiddo would be dressed like the beav. well, actually something a bit more rockabilly. but certainly '50s-inspired.

so i was very excited to find elvis fabric!



i dithered for a while, but ended up deciding on a classic short-sleeved shirt, with a yoke (the pattern is simplicity 3852). i did the yoke on the bias, because those elvises (elvii?) are tricky to line up. i did a pretty good job on the front patch pocket though!



sadly i had to give up on getting a good smiling face shot of my young model, he was being too silly! the candid is almost as good though.
