Long Pants For The Boy
At 17 months he looks like such a big boy that it was time for a "Big Boy" outfit. The shirt is made out of a striped blue and yellow cotton with a contrasting white collar.
Pattern #139 was used for the shirt and the shorts were redrafted to long pants with suspenders. To make the needed changes, I measured the little guy from waist to ankle, added the length to the shorts and then tapered them in slightly at the ankle. Suspenders were added which crisscross in the back and button to the pants in front. The pants are made out of a super soft denim and loops on the shoulders of the shirt help to hold the suspenders in place.
Quite the little climber, our little guy climbed out of the crib, opened his bedroom door, and decided to find Mommy and Daddy on his own last week!
