Next I needed a stripe, I dug though my piles of fabric and found turquoise and white seersucker that is a perfect match!
I found that when pairing dots with stripes, it helped to have a different scale for each fabric. In this case, giant dots for the shirt, and skinny stripes for the pants. Stripes and dots with a similar scale can look a little 'clown' to me.
Levi has a colorful personality so this outfit suits him well!
The whole outfit together.
The top comes from the latest issue of Ottobre magazine. It has those great giant dots and an orange mock shirt-underneath. I used the back of snaps in matching colors to decorate the neck binding.
And I didn't get the best pictures today, my model was less than cooperative. I kept getting weird stiff poses, eyes looking off to nowhere, and strange smiles!
