Confession: I don’t listen to a lot of pop music. I get a lot of my modern day musical education from The Voice. Or random songs I hear on Pandora. Which is actually where I found this one: Counting Stars, by One Republic.
This song has a really catchy tune, and I find myself singing it throughout the day. Okay, and dancing in my kitchen with my boys. When I first heard this song, it made me think of my oldest, because he loves – I mean LOVES – anything that has to do with stars and planets.
One of my favorite lines of the song says “I’ve been losing sleep, dreaming about the things that we could be.” And that’s one of the best things about my boy – he dreams big.
They have a slight flare to them and are flat front, with pockets in the back.
I added tuxedo stripes to the pants, which is really easy to do to any pants pattern.
1. Sew each pant leg together at the outer seam. Cut a long rectangular strip of fabric the length of your seam. How wide you cut the strip depends on the size of your pants and how wide you want the stripe to be. Remember to leave room for your seam allowance.
2. Fold over and press the long sides of the strip. I folded mine over about 3/8 in.
3. Pin the fabric along the seam and sew in place with a straight stitch on either side. So easy!
I used the Bond Top from Beatnik Kids for the shirt, modified without a collar and with an exposed zip. This is my third Bond Top now, and I really love this pattern.
An outfit perfect for dreaming about all your future could hold… like jumping on the moon.
