I have been working on a wardrobe for Lewis. Some of these items have already been shown and some I have made the last couple of weeks. Knitting is the one thing that is keeping me going at the moment as I can at least feel some sense of achievement when I finish something. My plan is to try and make his wardrobe as 'mix and match' as possible, both practical and stylish.
So far I have made:
Fairisle sweater and a grey cotton sweater.
Sweater, cap and socks set in brown and blue.
To the brown sweater set, I have also added a sleeveless sweater/vest with owls.
Green vest, socks and cap, and variegated vest with newsboy cap.
Oh dear Lewis, you look a bit dishevelled here!
I still want to make some matching socks for the variegated vest.
Loving these two sweaters, especially the rust one which I think suits Lewis especially well.
I am hoping to make him a v neck sweater as well.
Of course shorts are needed... In the photo above Lewis is wearing a pair of grey shorts which will go with a variety of sweaters. I have since made him a pair of rust brown socks.
Two more pairs of shorts to make.
I need to make some shirts to go with these as well. I have been working on a shirt pattern as my usual Gregor shirt pattern doesn't work for Schoenhut due to their larger and shorter necks. I have drafted a pattern that still needs a bit of tweaking, but have made two shirts so far, a green striped shirt and a red checked shirt which Lewis is wearing with a pair of dungarees I have made him, shown below.
I plan on making seven shirts for him and he will also need some trousers/pants in various styles; 'School trousers', jeans, going out/'posh' and general play.
I of course have his jackets made that have been previously shown in other posts.
The first pair of dungarees I made were a little tight on Lewis, but a perfect fit for Gregor, so I will add a photo here of him wearing them tomorrow. They go nicely with this shirt and will probably go into my Etsy shop. Donny wearing the dungarees...he looks real cute in them and ready for anything!
I have also managed to fulfil some commissions/orders.
Plus a few newsboy caps not shown.
Gosh looking at all this makes me feel a little bit better about things. My month has not been as unproductive as I thought. I may have only been sitting around a lot of the time, when I have not been in bed, but at least I have kept busy when I have been sitting. The beauty of all these things is that they also fit the Gregor dolls!
