What I've been sewing

Another prom has come and gone, but this is what I was sewing up exactly one week ago!








Guitar buttons,for that extra touch!


Also whipped up a pocket square and a bowtie! (easiest bowtie I've ever made, and I've made a handful. Finally, a decent, simple pattern and instructions for one! Can't say that the vest instructions were great, though. In fact, they were bad.)

Formalwear for your son. THIS IS AWESOME! The guitar buttons! So great! I am putting this in my favorites to remember for "someday," because my sons get little more than pajamas from me!

So happy you shared this!

Fantastic sewing for your son. I have two boys myself and find it difficult to find patterns to make them things they will wear. Thanks for sharing...I might try something like that for next year's (grade 8) graduation for my oldest...

The guitar buttons are amazing! My 4 year old would say your son looks really sharp.
What an incredible looking prom!
