One of my friends just had a little boy, and while trying to figure out what to make her I came across an adorable pattern for pants with suspenders that I had to make. Then I decide to just go ahead and make a whole outfit to go with it.


The outfit.


Spruce Suspender Shorts by ZuzzyPatterns on etsy. These were very easy to make. I can't wait till someone else has a baby boy so I can make more.


Newsboy Hat Sewing Pattern by ButterflyTree on etsy.  It's reversible. The one side is quilting cotton, and the other side is a soft wool. It was really easy to make. I might need to make my boys some.


Little Man Shoes by Shwin&Shwin. They are made of quilting cotton and lined with blue felt.


Clip on Bowtie tutorial by Mommy Minutes.  I made one to match the outfit, and a few extra just because. I also did varying sizes for different ages. They were really easy to make and turned out really cute.

I usually don't make clothes for boys, because I have a hard time finding things that I really love. But this outfit was probably one of my favorite things I've ever made.

I rocked you. I love how you included all of the text so other members can find the patterns/links etc.

Very cute outfit. Your color pallet is perfect for a growing boy. {Now make him a red bowtie  Cheesy

I hope you do have a chance to make more of these.

They remind me of Scotland...or maybe Brittan. They could work for a neat Halloween costume. Just swap out the buttons, add a sheep stuffy??? Just ideas.

Wonderful project. I am sure new Mom will love to display her prize dressed in this!  Grin
