Colin is at a funny moment for fancy boy clothing. On the one hand, I want to dress him up in little jon-jons forever, but for some reason, that doesn't feel right anymore. He's more little boy than baby. I don't necessarily want him dressed like a little old man, but he needs something that suits his personality more than a jon-jon would. (Obviously, I am overthinking little boy clothing.) I decided to make another Oliver and S Art Museum vest because I cannot make enough of these little vests (see the corduroy version here). Oh, the cuteness!
Those welt pockets are perfection in stripes.
I spent way too long trying to decide between the classic Art Museum trouser and the Sketchbook shorts. I debated this out loud to a friend, and she said that Easter is the perfect time to show off chubby knees. She is absolutely right.
I love this shorts pattern so much that I've actually whipped up three more pairs for the boy. And when I say "whipped up," that's exactly what I mean. This pattern comes together super fast and with quite a professional result. I can't wait to see how cute the boy looks in his Easter outfit next to his sister in her fancy dress!
