Family dance parties are a daily ritual for us and nothing gets the party started more than "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. Since its one of my son's favorite songs I thought it would be fun to recreate one of the looks from the music video for Sew in Tune.
Sew in Tune is a music inspired sewing series for boys co hosted by Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts and Melly Sews. I had the grand idea of making a hat and bow tie for this series. Unfortunately the hat did not make it into the post. It's a decent looking hat, but looked nothing like the hat I intended to make So I scrapped it.
My son LOVES bow ties, but he does not like the neck band. I don't like anything too close to my neck either, so I added a clip in the back of the bow tie and he did not put up a fight to wear it. #mommywin The shorts are cut offs from a baggy pair of jeans we had in the Goodwill pile and I altered the oxford shirt to give it a slim fit.
To coincide with the release of the single Pharrell launch a website to feature "the world's first 24 hour music video". The website is a live feed of Pharrell, along with various everyday people and celebrities dancing and lip syncing to the song. I couldn't help but in on the action... Check out our music video on the mingo & grace Facebook or Instagram page.
