I SWEAR I’m not biased when I say I think I must have the cutest little man in the world. I CANNOT get over how handsome he looks in his little Easter suit. Ahhhhh!!! Be still my heart!
This suit is the first edition of my vision, and it took me like a month to make. NOT because it was super difficult, it was just…not that exciting. Boy clothes are harder for me to get jazzed about I guess–probably the lack of lace and ric rac. The main problem was that I sew AFTER my kids are in bed, and so I never had a little body to try it on as I sewed, and progress was slow. BUT. When I did finish, I was so ecstatic with the results that it almost sent me into preterm-labor. I mean, REALLY. I love how the high-waisted trouser looks so Newsies, and how the complete ensemble is so dapper and Harold Hill.
The bowtie goes with this little suit, like Bob Ross and happy little trees. Miranda was a SAINT (I’m talking like Mother Teresa), and scanned and emailed me some directions for her perfect little bow-tie a couple nights ago. It’s an actual bow tie, I mean like it really ties, and is soooo far superior to the other child bow-ties I saw out there. Fortunately for all of you, I think she’s planning on throwing up a tutorial on her site for them pretty soon.
