Costa Mesa, Cali...
i enjoy making my son 2 piece suits (vest and skinnies) because its easier to work a 4 year old into a vest than a blazer. And that means less work for me, because vests are pretty cute and way easier!
This little outfit ensemble was created using a curtain panel, i loved the fabric and it was plenty to create this. The only problem is that it was a little ‘itchy’ so i lined it with a stray pillowcase i had lying around that had lost it’s partner.
The little bowtie was fun, although i have made him many bowties this was my first ‘tie into bowtie’ look and it was actually sooo much faster and easier than the bow bowtie.
He has a big part in what i make him, i let him choose the style and the buttons and where the pockets should go and combination of bow tie colors, its a fun process
pattern was self drafted
linen, poly satin, bias, buttons
