The services for my great aunt and uncle will be held shortly.
NZ and I want Salvatore to learn how to dress appropriately for situations. When the day arrives for him to attend school, we are prepared to fight him tooth and nail if he thinks pajama pants are appropriate school attire. PJ pants belong at home, not at school. This being said, men in our family will wear suits to funerals.
I set out last week trying to find a suit for Sal to wear to the memorial service. Apparently, I am the only mother of a 2 month old who thinks that suits would be a good product to purchase, because EVERYWHERE I shopped, I found nothing. The only thing I found remotley dressy for a 2 month old were communion clothes, and that wasn't what I was going for.
So, I lowered my search standards to a collared shirt and slacks. I'd add a necktie to it and it would have to do. Unfortunately, dress shirts in a 3 month old size are also unheard of? I ended up at Kohl's with a brown polo shirt in my hands...Hey, it had a collar.. Hello lowered standards!. Boo for brown, but it came home with me because I needed
Very Homeade and scoured my stash of fabric for "tie worthy" prints. I chose to use some plaid that I had leftover from a previous sewing project.
The ties are incredibly easy to make ( and quick to boot! 30 minutes from first cut to finish). I'd show you step by step how I made mine, but Very Homeade's tutorial is much better than anything I could do ( believe me..she maden her tutorial so easy that even a caveman could do it).
