I bought the book Vintage baby knits by Kristen Rengren precisely for this pattern.
I finally made it, and I am very happy with the result. I used a cotton yarn, it was a little thicker than the yarn it called for, but I just went down a size in the needles and Voila.... it was perfect.
Well, i also modified just a little bit by adding a few stitches, because the pattern is for an 18-24 month old, and i wanted it a little bigger, since we all know how quickly babies grow out of their clothes....
The sweater fits him, i just roll up the sleeves once, but the shorts are still quite big. I think it will be perfect for the fall

Both pieces

That's really cute.  I love the colours you chose.

I may need to check out this book.
