I mentioned my love of piping yesterday, but I think it’s worth revisiting. I love the way piping instantly makes something more snazzy and profesh, like the little collared shirt for Elliot that I posted yesterday. I’ve used piping on little backpacks, pants, on my own clothing, and on purses. In fact, I think I will boldly say that I have NEVER seen a sewn item that piping did not improve. Which brings me to my fourth (and final, at least for this round of CTB) rule when it comes to sewing for boys:
I cannot even believe how much these overalls rock. There are many more photos of these amazing overalls (above) on Mamasha’s blog here.
Bright red piping offers great contrast for these black and white cars!
La Inglesita blogged about this outfit here:
This adorable coat has a dedicated blog post here.
And while we’re loving the yellow piping, this playsuit is just about too cute for words:
