*you can see more of my inspiration on my Pinterest board: Where The Boys At?
So far I have 5 shirts DONE, 3 pants almost done (I just need to do the elastic and waistband, arghhhh the finishing), and a lightweight jacket patterned and cut. The suits are becoming a lesser priority at the moment, sigh.... Obviously basic shirts have not been an obstacle - in fact they are quite fun. The jacket I am working on is a different story, so many details, so many things I am figuring out and making up as I go along, design decisions that I am terrified to commit to. Part of me wants to say that I am not allowed to work on anything new until the jacket is done - part of me thinks it might get so stressful that having an easy project to complete in the middle might make me at least feel like I am moving forward. WHAT SAY YOU???
*I actually started sewing their wardrobe about 3 weeks ago, don't think I got all of this done in one week!!!
And a glimpse of what I have been working on.
So happy with this outfit!!! (no, the waist is not done in the pants, thus photographed on the floor and not on a boy - leave me alone, I said this was a sneak peak!) And no, I did not make the shoes - I found them at that store I was telling you about, Kid2Kid - so cute, so perfect for this outfit (and I paid $0 for them because of the store credit I had).
This is the outer shell of the jacket starting to come together - it will be fully lined, have a zipper, collar, cuffs, waist band, and HOOD! The pockets aren't sewn down because I don't know what to do with them yet - they are different (one is a zippered pocket and one is a tab pocket - not sure if I want them perfectly aligned/same exact size, etc...). HELP!
This is the first 90 minute shirt I made - it is my favorite of the FOUR I have made (I really like this style)
A loving his new shirt. Dance, dance, dance! I am making everything a bit big as the boys are still growing fast and they wont wear these for a few months still. (*And B has a good 5-7lbs on A, I need things to work for both of them ;op)
What have you been working on????
