Boy's Can Wear Pink 2

I'm so glad that Boy's Can Wear Pink is happening for a second year in a row! I love the meaning behind it and seeing all the inspirational outifts made. There's also a big giveaway so make sure you enter!

Maybe it's because Jude has 3 older sisters, but he loves dresses and dolls and getting his nails painted. He also loves trucks and helicopters and Spiderman. I'm very much into letting my kids be in charge of what they like and love and how they want to express themselves (except when they want me to shave them bald. Nope. Been there, done that, not ever doing it again). Jude has no qualms about telling me what he wants me to make him and it makes me so happy to be able to make things he truly loves to wear.
The shirt we made Jude for last years tour was well loved and worn very often!

We're keeping up with our summer clothing sewing and went with a tank top and shorts.
The top is Titchy Threads Twisted Tank. Regular version. I made it out of Target sheets, heathered blue for the main and heathered yellow for the pocket. I decided to go with darker topstitching thread to give it a bit more of an edgy look. The fit of this tank is awesome and Jude loves showing off his "muscles".

The shorts are Blank Slate Clean Slate Pants. I've had this madras fabric for a couple of years now and I've gone back and forth on what I wanted to make with it. I'm so glad I finally cut them into shorts! They are so perfect for Jude!

The garbage truck came around while we were doing the photoshoot, so Jude kept trying to look over me to watch it!
