Here is my little one’s outfit for Easter (if he doesn’t outgrow it before then)!
Here is a picture of the old one; I took this photo before I hacked it to pieces. Just kidding! I just took apart all of the seams and used the pieces to make a pattern, adding a few inches to make it larger. It was actually easier than I expected it to be; easier even than working with an actual pattern, because I could see exactly how it all went together. My trim is a little bit simpler, and I added pockets in the front, because he is currently obsessed with them and now refuses to wear anything without pockets. The old one was also polyester. Aside from these small alterations, I really just copied the original.
I used some anchor buttons, which I thought were cute, but now I’m thinking that they look less vintage than the pearl buttons on the original. What do you think?
