First I want to say thanks to Cindy, Knitmachine Queen, and Pamela for being my "blogging sisters" and sending me the Sisterhood award!!
Here's the first of a five piece outfit for Little Man for Easter. He's getting pants, of course, a tie, a jacket, and a hat. I did not have a pattern for this. I had a shirt that he had outgrown that was made kind of like this. I had so much trouble with the collar. First, I got it way too small, then I got it, not so much, too small, but too small, nevertheless. Then, I got it too big, but almost right. Then, I got it okay. I'm not sure how this neck will fit. I hope it's ok.
Now for the pants from a pattern that has a fake zipper. I'm putting in a zipper.
Then for a jacket from a pattern without a collar. I'm going to try to make a lapel and all.
Then for a hat that is sort of like my daughter wants it, but not quite.
I'm going to wing it on the tie. I made him one at Christmas, but I want this one to be better.
My DD and SIL don't want their Little Man to dress in the cute little one piece overall shorts with smocked ducks, etc... Now, those, I could find patterns for. That's alright I like a challenge.
I need a dress form for each grand that would grow with them. I have the two that my daughter gave me for Christmas, but they are really just for displaying, not for fitting. I love them, though. They make picture taking easier, except for this shirt which wouldn't fit on either of them.
