Kool Flattop

By ari - August 10, 2012

Today you can find me over on Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy!  for their Sew In Tune series! It's a boy-centred sewing series inspired by music. I was inspired by Kool Flattop by The Horrorpops!

I made a college/varsity jacket from a Raglan-sleeved tee pattern.

This outfit is exactly entirely made by me. I made it for the 'signature style' themed week at Project Run & Play's sew along. Unfortunately my family had to go through some pretty tragic stuff and even though I had the outfit and the photos, I really procrastinated and didn't have the chance to enter it. The pants were made from a pair of shorts I made myself when I was 17, the shirt I made from scratch and stitched on a patch of Johnny Cash from a t-shirt I outgrew {in the chest area ha}.

Vince has had one of these jackets every size he grows into, and so when I sewed a new one up fo rhim {in the next size up} he chose... Orange. Katy would be proud.
