Feature Friday - Pants and Bow Ties

I bought some wild plaid fabric at Hobby Lobby a month ago and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  I purchased it to make Baden some pants.  The kid looks like a garden gnome and I can't help but have a little fun when dressing him.  Let's just say I couldn't help myself.

I used Dana's pants tutorial again, but I tried the flat front version this time.  That way we can tuck in his shirt and not have it look weird.

I used my Retro Pointed Bow Tie pattern to make a matching bow tie.


And?  I just can't get enough.  I realize it's a bold look and may not be for everyone, but I just love it.  Who said dressing boys isn't as fun?


I can't wait for him to sport this look on Sunday at church.

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Seth's Awesome Adventure plaid. I have the coordinating paisley print and had kind of the same vision for pants and bow tie, probably because I visit your blog every day and have seen the darling bow ties. I LOVE the plaid pants!

  11. You are killing me with cuteness! Baden is so stinking adorable in those pants. He looks like he belongs on a golf course. :)

  13. Ahhhhh he is so adorable! I just want to put him in my pocket and save him for a rainy day! I love it. If I had boys they would constantly be dressed like they were about to go riding in the english countryside. Except if I had girls they would be dressed like they're ready for a tea party and yet Nicole manages to wander around in leggings with a tshirt, hair in pigtail braids that were falling out yesterday, looking for all the world like a hobo child but happy as all get out. sigh. That said, she does dress like she is ready for a tea party SOME of the time, and she likes it when she does!

  14. Ah! I LOVE it! Dressing boys is SO much fun once you get over thinking they need to dress like your average adult dude. The pants + bow tie is so fantastic. It's also hilarious that you said Baden kind of looks like a garden gnome! I've been trying to sew some different clothes for my son lately. It's so much more fun since I stopped thinking the clothes I make should look like what I would find in the stores. And I just used Dana's flat front pant tutorial for the first time yesterday too. Love it!

  29. I love it! Dressing boys is so much fun! My husband laughs at some of the things I put my son in but bold prints and patterns are such a fun combo on boys. Great job!

  30. He is so adorable and I love those pants!

    I've been wanting to try making the flat front pants for my 5 year old, but I'll have to size them up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ooooh, now I know what I'm doing with those hand-me-down plaid shirts my husband was given, but couldn't wear!

    ReplyDelete
  32. a-stinkin-dorable!!! Love it! I just may have to do something like this for my son and dress him in it two minutes before we leave so my husband can't change it! :) Have a good weekend!

  36. The way you dress your boys is so CUTE! I love how dapper your little man looks. Thanks for showing me that if I have nothing but boys, they can still be as fun to dress as girls!

  37. The outfit is almost as cute as its model!

    ReplyDelete
  38. He is BEYOND adorable. I love the photos you take of him. =) And I LOVE the outfit. I would put my son in that in a heartbeat!! I know my husband would dig it too.

    I just made a tiny bow tie for my little man. I didn't use a pattern but I think it turned out great! If you want to see it, it's on my Bourdier Family blog. =)

    P.S. I've probably told you, but you make me love having boys even more than I already do!

I've been sitting here for the last 15 minutes trying to figure out how you painted them plaid! ahh! I was totally on board to try it too! I would like to purchase these :) run it by your little gnome and let me know what he thinks. So ADORABLE!
