Well, it turns out, my little boy was invited to a 50's dance party by one of his dance class teammates so then I just had to pull the trigger on this and make the jacket. So, OK! Fine! I settled for not using ribbing and just using the same fabric for the wrists and waist bands. I went to JoAnn's and very executively found the closest length zipper to what was called for and started up on it two days before the party, because that's how I like to do things.
|I had to settle for this plain star as I couldn't fine the army sergeant patch featured in the magazine.|
|I got him this vintage box of gum to roll up in his shirt sleeve.|
|Couldn't resist a last minute marker tattoo.|
|At the party. So cute!|
