Our family recently saw The Phantom Tollbooth at Wheelock Family Theatre in Boston. The Play was fantastic.
However, it wasn’t the amazing talent of the girl who played Milo that stuck to my mind, but the image of the shirt worn by those in the Doldrums (a colorless place where thinking and laughing are not allowed.) It looked the perfect pajama shirt.
Yay! The pattern was in the stretch fabric version of the Pattern Magic book.
Instead of making the basic pattern, I traced my son, omitted the tuck at the top of the head.
I should shave off more fabric above the shoulders for the next one, make the opening for the face smaller, and will use a solid color. With navy blue stripes, my son looks like he should be in jail…
