My boys asked me to sew something for them for Easter. I guess they get a little jealous that I make so many of their sister's clothes and not so much for them. So, I made some super cute and easy linen drawstring pants and some neckties. I misplaced my necktie pattern, so I had to wing it and reinvent the wheel. The new way is so much easier than my old way and much more durable for the little guys. (My boys very much dislike fake ties. They insist on real ties that actually tie. They're little old persnickety men.)







I also made my daughter a little peasant underdress with a ruffle and an apron dress to go over the top. She loved it.

Thank you, all.

https://notesfromtheparsonage.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/easiest-necktie-ever/ I put the tutorial for the ties on my blog. I took lots of pictures, so it was easier to put it in blog form.  Wink
