It's been a long time. I've missed this blog but boy have my days and nights been full of making memories wroth my guys. I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world.
This project almost made me want a little girl. Then, my dream of bows and ruffles morphed into a nightmare of teenage hormones. Let me just say the thought jumped out of my head and ran far far away. BUT, the project was super fun to make and turned out super cute.
I have to give a shout out to my classmate that referred the client and to the stylists, mom and auntie, that came up with one of the cutest little outfits I've seen in a while. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a red blazer for a 1 year old. I'm so glad I did it.
The fabric came from Joann's. I wanted to do a polka dot lining but the associate at the cutting table talked me into the solid. I'm really glad I went with the solid red. The button came Walmart. It all came together really well.
I learned a lesson making this one. Always ask about the child's height. I gauged the original length of the blazer of of my 7 month old. (He's really tall for his age. ) Bad idea because the Queen is not very tall. I had to cut the length of the blazer and the sleeves. It changed the shape of the blazer but I think it's cuter this way.
Check out the process here.
I'll be making blazers for my boys real soon.
Check out the Queen rocking the blazer at her birthday party! Isn't she adorable?
