The time has come to wrap up my time with Boro from Parson Gray. It’s been so fun to show you great ways to incorporate these prints into girl’s clothing, but today I’m going to show you what you can make for the boys!
I have to say. I have not had much trouble getting my kids to wear mama-made clothes. Occasionally my girl will pitch a fit, but she has more clothes than should be legal. But my boys always surprise me when they choose something out of their closet that has been made with love (and sweat…and sometimes tears)! In fact, my little guy chose to wear this Parson Gray mashup to church yesterday. Made this mama proud!
Needless to say, I don’t have to bribe this one into wearing what I make! For my last Boro post (which is out now, by the way), I chose to sew the Butler Britches from brownie-goose and I sized down the Men’s Bow Tie pattern (free!) from Sew Like My Mom.
The only adjustment I made to this already great pattern was to put a buttonhole and button at the top of the cuff instead of using the loop. In our past experience with this pattern and this particular boy, making this change made the cuffs stay put a little better.
I LOVE this Men’s Tie pattern from Sew Like My Mom. It’s free, which is great, but I’ve used it several times for my little guys and it’s a great add on to an outfit when you want that extra pop. It takes up less fabric than a regular necktie, a super fast sew, and while it’s a little big, it’s not too clownish. And on this kid? I can’t handle the CUTE!
I think it’s safe to say that he likes it.
