In yesterday’s color roundup post, I showed you a ton of ideas for using color in boys’ clothing. This hoodie for Elliot is another example of how I love to use color in a more subtle way. Sometimes pairing a bright color (like teal! or red!) with a neutral (like off-white or grey) can create a really fun pop of color.

This hoodie was made with my Flashback Tee Sewing Pattern, a super-basic skinny tee that comes in two sets of sizes, little kid (12 months – 5T) and big kid (6-14). Elliot has *JUST* made it into the big kid sizes…yay!!! Sooo glad I made that pattern bigger, as it has become a huge staple of my kids’ wardrobes! The basic skinny tee on its own is really easy and quick and has huge potential to be varied to make other wardrobe basics. You’ve probably already seen my tutorials on turning the Flashback Tee into a short-sleeved shirt, a puff-sleeved shirt, and a dress, but for this BOY series, I wanted to give it a hoodie twist!
It looks pretty awesome with the saffron pants, don’t you think?
This pic of him “walking the runway” totally cracks me up. Want to know what the little dude thinks of his new hoodie?
I think that’s two thumbs up! Seriously, though, he has been wearing this thing like crazy. LOVES the hood.
Need a how-to? That’s coming up shortly!!
