Boys CAN Wear Pink Tour

I have two little girls so I'm very used to sewing pink things. When Kelly posted that she was having a month long blog series of pink clothes for boys I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I asked my 8 year old nephew if he was interested and he was happy to help. 

Kaleb is the sweetest little boy I know and a little on the shy side. I knew I didn't want to go crazy in your face pink with him because I wanted him to feel comfortable wearing the shirt. This top is the Bowling Shirt by Scientific Seamstress. He's a little small for his age so I went with the 5/6 and I love the fit. 

The dark brown is a broadcloth and the floral fabric I picked up on sale at Walmart last spring. I made my Maddie a dress using the same fabric and this was what was left over. I think it was the perfect combination for this little man. 

After participating in the Boys Can Wear Pink Tour I now have a new found respect for mom's who sew for their boys. Patterns for girls are so easy to come by and I almost never give a second thought to what fabric I choose aside from if I or my girls like it. I'm glad that I was able to participate in a tour that is helping to break down those stereotypes.

  1. Thank you to you and your adorable nephew for joining us in Boys Can Wear Pink! He looks darling in his shirt and I hope he loves it.

  2. So sweet. I love the fabric combos. I've been toying with buying this pattern but am intimidated by all of the buttons and collar and such....I probably just need to suck it up and make one already.

    1. You totally should. I bought it a little while ago to make bowling shirts for my girls but I put it off as well. It's such an easy pattern and the instructions are awesome!

  3. adorable!!! He is a little cutie! Love the shirt!
