Week three. Boy week- by far my favorite!
I started out this week with the blazer, intended for Case. The kid really needs some new jackets/hoodies but when I misjudged the size, the blazer was passed up. I was then on the mission to create a few pieces to complete the look for Mae.
The green fabric was an easy choice, Mae will wear anything green. It is a super thick interlock knit from Stitch Simple that I had ordered a few weeks ago with prize money from a sew-along challenge last season. With the stripey knit, black top-stitching, and pouch back pocket these are Mae's new favorite 'comfy pants'.
The turquoise tee, although a bit much with the green pant, was the perfect compliment under the dark blazer. We have a great love of chop sticks in this house so it seemed the right decal for the back of the shirt.
The blazer actually began as a picture in my head as I have followed the Basic Bodice Design Series over on icandy handmade. I know there are quite a few patterns out there for blazers but I wanted to see if I could design one based on a basic bodice, especially since I wanted the collar a bit different. The blazer is fully lined and all knit so wears just like a hoodie, comfy enough for a boy to run and play in.
