Kwik Sew 3146 - Yellow Plaid Shirt

It's time to start thinking about spring clothes for the kiddos.  I started with this no-brainer for my son: a new shirt to wear to church.

I've used this pattern many times before (see here and here).  But, it looks like I need to look for the next size grouping because I used the T4 and had to make it bigger to fit.  I added 1" in width to the yoke, 1/2" on each side of the neck and also 1" to the front and back (added 1/2" to each pattern piece).  I added the extra in the middle of the shoulder seam so as not to mess up the neck or armhole.  I didn't want to have to change all the pattern pieces.  I also added 1.5" in length , but trimmed off 5/8" before hemming.

I bought the fabric at Fabricland during the closing sale, so it was a pretty good deal.  It's pretty lightweight, but I liked the yellow puckery plaid for spring and summer.

Next up: Spring dresses for the girls.
