Sewing for Sam

I have been trying to think of something I can sew for Sam.  His sensory issues make that a bit difficult.  For example, I made him really lovely Oliver and S bedtime Story pajamas and he refused to wear them because they felt "different".  I was able to get him to wear the pants for a abotu 15 minuted but he absolutely FLIPPED when I tried to put the kimono style top on him.  SO now I have this great pair of size 8 pajamas and no one to wear them!  They are blue and brown so, unless she adjusts her tastes, Maya won't wear them when  she is older ( I keep hoping she will learn to love blue like I do!!)

I think I have decided to make Sam a Charlie Tunic.  I love this pattern and I have made a few shirts for the girls.  The pattern doesn't quite go up to his size but I think I can size it up myself.

Here are the first two I made for the girls:
