Project Run & Play Week 5 - Movie Week Part 2

Thursday, May 10, 2012
PR & P outfit for my boy was long overdue, so I got busy this week.  Although my wonderful husband suggested I create a Tarzan loincloth (obviously he was kidding, but can you imagine?!?), I opted to go with a Swing Kids inspired ensemble.  The incredible 1940s fashions in this film is just one of the many reasons why I love it so much.  

The inspiration:


I made Tobias a shirt, vest, pair of shorts, and to complete the look: a polka-dotted bow tie.
The vest and shorts are reversible.

It's been a whirlwind of a week, but I'm so glad to have sewn something for my boy.  Not that he ever complains about it, but I sew way more for Anja (girl clothes are so much easier to make, right?!).

  1. Super cute! What patterns did you use? Or did you just wing it? I'm auditioning shorts patterns for my 3-yr old now. Love the plaid shorts with the vest!

    1. Thank you! I didn't use a pattern, but I will be posting a tutorial for these shorts in the next week or two. Maybe the vest, too. Thanks again!

  2. The shorts are great. I look forward to seeing the pocket detail.
