Henry Shirt Sew-along

Who would like a step-by-step, how-to-sew tutorial with photos of that adorable (“advanced”) first project from the book?

Krista from Thar She Sews and Leila from Bilingual Baby have teamed up to produce a really wonderful sew-along of the Henry Shirt, and share the times they have spent with their respective seam-rippers as well (so you can avoid the same).

Don’t worry if you missed the start because you were working on Halloween costumes or you were at quilt market, or what-not, you can jump in now and have a beautiful Henry Shirt for your own guy.

  1. I just finished making the Henry shirt for my toddler and I wanted to tell you how much I love it! The styling is so cute and now my husband wants a matching shirt.

    Even though I had a couple of minor problems (my fault, I was being sloppy when tracing the pattern pieces), it still went together pretty easily and the two sew-alongs helped with the construction questions I had. Next time I’m going to try removing the pleat because the shirt flares out at the bottom. I don’t think I’d have that problem with a larger size, but with the toddler 2/3 size, the pleat adds a lot of width.

    Thanks for such a fun pattern – looking forward to trying some more!
