*** Our son was born November 25th!***
Because my husband and I are uber dorks.. I like sewing and he likes wearing matchy outfits for 'special occasions'. Now that we have a Son on the way it gives me tons of reasons to make matchy outfits.

Daddy wanted to have matchy outfits for Going Home From the Hospital Day (which is not coming soon enough I tell ya!). So using some fabric he had already picked out for a shirt for himself, I whipped up the following ensembles.

Using this Tute and pattern found at Sew Mama Sew http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2010/10/october-20-baby-kimono-wrap-tutorial-london-mummy-giveaway-2/  I made the baby a kimono style top (button closures vs. ties) and used a pair of his existing pants to make a pattern for the elastic waist bottoms. They are sized at 6 mo (yes I know he is going to swim in them.. it's mostly for the photo ops!) so he can wear them for a while.

I used the trusty Kwik Sew pattern I've been using to make shirts all Summer for Hubby.

***We now have an action shot!***

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

The matchy matchy outfits are perfectly dorkylicious and I mean that in a VERY positive way! Daddy and son will both look FAB wearing them on coming home day.

Those look great.  I'm sure they will both look great in them.
