I can't believe I got it done!
I am so excited about finishing Benjamin's blessing outfit :)
I love how it turned out, I hope his mom will be happy with it.
I sewed my heart out....
Did I mention that the last time I sewed this pattern, it was for my now 19 year old son? Lol...He was 3 when I made him his last smocked outfit.
We lived in the South so it wasn't uncommon to look like "Little Lord Fontleroy".
The pants are little knickers. (cute!)
I used six antique buttons to attach the pants to the shirt.
The fabric is Swiss cotton.
I added a little label to the inside of the shirt.
This is a view of the back of the shirt.
I used antique pearl buttons and only two are the same.
I thought it added character to have them all just a little different.
Benjamin's blessing is on Sunday.
I will share photos of Benjamin in his outfit next Wednesday.
I hope it fits him okay, keep your fingers crossed :)
