I made this charming little coat and hat for my son, Henry. The pattern is McCall’s 6255 from 1962. It was a stunt outfit for pictures, so I skipped all the interesting tailoring instructions included in the pattern. It still took me two years to finish it!

Your little guy looks like a little aristocrat in that outfit. You can't find clothes that nice for baby boys anymore!
