Spring Fever Remix - Boy Style


For the boy, I had to think outside the box a bit. It couldn't be a dress, for starters. And we definitely were not going to add ruffles. I've already been parading him everywhere with a pink blanket, no need to further damage him.


I had been thinking about all of the details of the dress. It had a bib front and 4 layers to the skirt. That I could work with for a boy. I started off with the Charlie shirt pattern by Zonen09 mostly because of the way the front was. I modified it to make a square bodice. I also thought about adding a button closure to the front, but thought this look would be fine without it. Then I taped off 4 stripes to paint in reference to the 4 layers. I know the final shirt has 5 stripes. I was slightly messy and a 5th stripe became necessary.



Then since I'm on summer mode, I made him some shorts using the Clean Slate Pants/shorts/capris pattern by Blank Slate Patterns. I've never done welt pockets before and have been dying to try them! But sadly, the size I made is HUGE on Jude and will fit Paisley instead. So for this photo shoot, I just put him in some Skinny Jeans I made him a couple months ago. 




And here's when my little guy had had enough


And a peek to see if I was watching or still taking pics....


The best part about this shirt is that I made it reversible. Since it's still freezing here, the added layer is nice.





I know you have got to be sick of pictures, but I had to add this one! I totally caught a sneeze in action!


Look at that spit!!

Now head over to Project Run and Play to see all of the other amazing remix's!
