Easter Outfit

here's my nathan in his easter outfit. i made the hat, the bowtie and his pants all using free tutorials i found on blogs. don't you just love that!

the pants are from MADE (a creative collection) w/out the kneepads as you see. i totally wanted to do the flat front pockets but forgot until after i had already sewn up the hem.

the bowtie is from something about katie.

and the newsboy cap is from clevergirl.

one other thing i *was* going to make was a pair of suspenders. i purchased a pattern from dainty couture, but ended up not going that route. i wanted nathan to still look like a little boy for now. he's growing up way too fast for me!

and lastly the fabric is robert kaufman's "MC plaid 80's". good luck trying to find any though! i had a tough time finding more than 1 yard at a time and had to get it from a few sources.

Hey Kathryn...
Would you be intrested in duplicating this outfit for my little man? I can't get over how sweet it is. He's our miracle baby. Been through open heart surgery and now dealing with seizures! Please email me back at amywcraft@gmail.com
Thanks,
Amy
