Junior Prom 2017

My sweetie pops went to Prom!


Here is my submission for Faye's Tops that Pop Sew-A-Long!

During the challenge I was inundated with KC's prom project. I shopped for and altered his suit, changed the buttons on the suit, made his pocket square, ascot and his dress shirt (i.e. Pop'n Top!) In this past two weeks I think I heard the word "Mommy" so many times, I'm hearing it in my sleep! (or am I woke?) I made a HUGE boo boo and had to start the shirt completely over (thank God I had extra fabric). After that rude awakening, I knew I wouldn't make this challenge with all the work that needed to be completed before prom so, I asked Ms. Faye would KC's shirt work for the challenge and to my surprise she said yes! Here are some pics of KC's Pop'n Top and that Pop'n Top in ACTION!

McCall's 6044 Custom Sized for KC
My TNT for him!
Shirt details: Collar, Ascot, Pocket Square and Cuff with Monogram
KC Picked all the fabrics and notions!

Pics with our baby!! Time sure flies!


Look how handsome!

I'm so proud of the young man he has become and can't wait for him to grow into the wonderful man I know he will be! Sewing for him is my secret pleasure! Now that Top Pops!



How CUTE do they look and age appropriate I might add!
