Wednesday grew up

Did you miss this little face?

It's Vincent! All grown up! Well. He's 9.5 months now, so that's pretty big!

Anyway, here he is modelling his brand new clothes!

He doesn't look too impressed, but trust me, he LOVES that Rocking Moose, AND his guitar shirt. I drafted the pattern from scratch using one of his old button-ups shirts as a guide. I am so proud, it looks so professional!

It has a collar, and a back yoke with a little lopp in the centre back ((ya know, like Daddy's business shirts)) and the front does up with snaps.

This one is made from the same pattern. I used black and white gingham fabric to make the shirt up in, and did real buttons + buttonholes! The buttonholes look like squashed flies, but I'm getting better. It has red ricrac on the pocket and across the back to look like a little western shirt!

That's the back and he's wearing his skinny leg jeans I made him Smiley

I made his pj pants too from a pattern I made myself. It's a size too big, which is good because he has about a thousand size 0 clothes!

More pyjamas! Like a grown-up! I used an Enid Gilchrist book to help draft the pyjama top. I Did an applique on his pocket too. I havn't done applique's in a long time.

I made a red tee for him from scratch and added an old tie of my father's ((that I found out was from my Opa!)) to the front and sleeves. I had previously used the skinny end bit as a mini tie for Vin ((pics soon!))

The pants I reconstructed from a pair of shorts my mum donated to the snip snip cause! I kept the waistband the same and the front + back centre seams. They are so long and baggy but I think he looks adorable in them!

I made this waistcoat from scratch too! It's lined and has faux welt pockets and big silver buttons down the front! It does up with velcro! I made a TUTORIAL for this too. You can find it in my blog Smiley

Oh my! What a handsome young man you have there to model all of those beautiful clothes! I love the bright blue eyes! And your sewing is something to be greatly desired- as in, I wish I could sew like that!

My favorite is definitely the first guitar shirt up there Smiley And I'm adoring the red pajamas! They look incredibly comfy! I also love the look of the waistcoat! Oooh! They all look so professional!

Plus, I think our two boys could be long lost brothers ^_^ Vince reminds me of my lil' man very much! Same facial expressions and everything!

All of those clothes are awesome!  Does that child ever NOT smile??  He should be a model or something...if nothing else an eye model (if there is such a thing).  Gorgeous!

Oh wow I love them all!
Where did you get that awesome spiderweb fabric from?
Your little boy is just so cute, he looks like a little spunk in all those awesome clothes!
I am only just starting to sew clothes for my baby girl (she's 10.5months) as now her growing has slowed a little I can finally keep up!
