I took pity on him and let him take off his shirt.
He was happy about that, but after a recent visit by my granddaughter I found him sobbing in the corner -- wearing a DRESS! My granddaughter doesn't think children should go around half naked, not even small elf boys, so she put the dress on him to cover up his bare chest.
If you are a regular reader you might know that Flame originally had a female body and had to wait for months for Tingle to bring him a male body. After all that waiting to be a real elf boy he just couldn't bear the humiliation of wearing a dress.
I told him he was welcome to dig through my fabric stash to find something he would like for a summer t-shirt. He chose a bright and cheerful yellow and I made up his t-shirt that same afternoon.
With temperatures rising and a long summer ahead of us I thought he deserved a pair of shorts too. I randomly chopped some length off of my existing Realfee pants pattern and sewed some simple shorts.
Next time I think I'll make them a bit shorter yet. What do you think? How long should a little elf boy's shorts be anyway? Would mid knee cap be about right?
