I never expected to post on the clothing for children board!



One of my oldest friends is my pen pal from 9th-grade German class.  GASP! That's 27 years ago!  He and his wife just had their first baby (A BOY!) and I really wanted to make them something, but I wasn't sure what.  THEN I got the bright idea to make faux Lederhosen!  Neither of the new parents are Bavarian, but he did live in Munich for a few years (during the beginning of their courtship) and if I remember correctly he bought some Lederhosen and she a Dirndl to wear to Oktoberfest.  AND they also know that a lot of the non-German world thinks that all Germans wear Lederhosen all day, every day.  Wink



The Hosen are costume suede which seemed the comfortable, machine wash- and dryable, looks-close-enough-to-leather option.  I looked at dozens and dozens of images of Lederhosen online and determined that wouldn't do ALL the details, but I wanted to applique that front part with a little bit of "embroidery" detail and add the buttons, which on these are non-functioning.  For the basic pants I used a pattern purchased here on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/125045470/pants-pattern-for-baby-and-toddler?ref=shop_home_active



For the onesie, I made the suspenders with the cross piece from the costume suede and then added the fancy ribbon.  A floral would have been more traditional from what I could tell in my image searches, but I just couldn't find a "masculine" floral in the small selection at my local fabric store.



Now I'm just waiting to verify their mailing address, so I can ship it off.  The onesie is 6-month size, the pants 6-12 month. They baby is about 1 month, but apparently he's big so hopefully it will fit soon.

Thanks!  If all there was to having babies was making cut outfits and dressing them up for a photo, I might've considered having some around. Smiley

Thank you!  If only I could find a small teething toy shaped like a stein in my tiny town by Monday...

That is super cute!
Maybe try a pretzel shaped teething toy? I remember having one when we were kids, and it might be a bit easier to find.

Thanks guys!  There's an idea with the pretzel-shaped teether!  Even though these things aren't going to fit at teething time, it'd sure make a cute package.
