A colorful omni tempore

My son's wardrobe was getting a bit monotonous, and since he will usually wear anything I make him (unlike his big sister), I decided it was time to do some bold color-combining.
So I took a dive into my fabric stash and reappeared with a blue, yellow and pink knit, some teal and orange ribcord. Finally I found the patterned fabric that was used for his Stylo outfit, and that combines all the other colors.
I chose the Omni Tempore sweater, by Sofilantjes, a Dutch pattern designer with a line of fun (unisex) patterns. A nice pattern with a hood and cowl option. 
I had sewn the hooded version before, and wanted to try out the cowl version this time. 
I sewed a size 9 for my tall 6-year old. It's quite roomy (it fits perfectly on my 8-year old daughter), but thanks to the sleeve cuffs and bottom band, it doesn't look too oversized. 
The photos were taken near some characteristic buildings and in a churchyard. Unfortunately, my son was not his usual cheerful self, hence all the cropped photos ;-) 
It's a beautiful location, that I also used for the Stylo photoshoot. So fun to see how much he has grown in the meantime.
The new sweater is a hit. my son has worn it for days in a row now. He loves it and so do I.
