Here's the thing. I'm not generally inspired by music in my sewing. Give me texture, color, style, pattern, and my mind starts to spin. Music? Nope. Nothing. Last time, I used Hawaii Five-O's theme song in my outfit, but truth be told, I really just wanted to re-purpose a Hawaiian shirt into some cute shorts with a button waistband, and I found a song that would match my already planned out style.
That happened again... maybe I'm not cut out for these Sew in Tune posts! Ha!
When it comes to my signature boy style, I love preppy with a twist. That lead me to exploring bands like One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful". I thought I'd had it settled, ya know... They had that preppy style that I love (with really goofy hair, which I don't).
When I found this image Of monsters and men, it just made me laugh. Don't they look like deer wearing glasses just standing out in the woods? Ha!
Which did turn wacky, because getting good photos of a moving 2 year old is about like me trying to get inspired by music, no lie!
The last aspect of this outfit is actually his belt.
Believe it or not, I refashioned two belts into one.
I thrifted both belts for a few dollars. I loved the blue/white pattern, texture, but not the brown leather style or the fact that it was too big for Cai, too. I found a similar sized belt with metal hardware I liked. You will need these tools.
Then follow these steps:
Sweater Pattern: Rae's Flashback Skinny Tee size 3T
Sweater Fabric: Thrifted American Eagle Sweater
Pocket Fabric: Echino for Kokka "Buck", self-drafted pocket
Belt: Thrifted, re-sized, re-invented
