Today I'm more than thrilled to share another completely original and utterly fabulous tutorial from Stephanie of The Crafty Kitty! Stephanie shows us how to put together this boy's collared shirt, and the best part is that the back is paper-pieced with an adorable snow-capped mountain! We think this shirt looks amazing in our upcoming Feather River line! Don't you think? Download the pattern for your own version!
A free, boy's shirt sewing pattern; the Cerro Torre is named for one of the mountains in the southern patagonian ice field, due to it's distinctive mountain range paper pieced back. Other features include contrast cuffs, collar and button placket. Shown here with the Skater Shorts Pattern. With short sleeves, just like the mountains, your little one will be cool in the summer; or layer over a long-sleeve t-shirt for cooler months. The Cerro Torre Boy's shirt sewing pattern is available in ages 2-6.
