This is the second part of S’s wedding outfit. I enjoyed my little brother’s wedding so much that I forgot to take a good photo! This is the best one I have.
I made MImi’s Suspender Shorts from Sewing for Boys. It was so new to sewing that I didn’t realize that I had to finish the seams. It’s pretty ugly inside. The wedding was at the very end of last summer, and he only wore it this one time. Maybe I’ll retrospectively serge the seam allowances. It might still fit this summer, though I’m not sure when he’ll want to wear suspenders.
I found the tie pattern here. I’m happy that I made a real tie instead of a clip on. Once it’s tied, it stays on well. S. loved it too. He likes to wear the tie to school. I had to watch this video REPEATEDLY while tying the tie. I don’t know if I’m slow, but I couldn’t do it without simultaneously watching the video.
