The engagement party is tomorrow - yay - and my son's outfit has finally come together. I made the little jacket and I love the way it has turned out. Look how handsom he looks, hahaha, you can tell I'm his mum!! The pattern is from the Cucito magazine (Winter 2011 edition).
It is meant to be double breasted but I adjusted it so it just did up in the middle with two buttons. The top collar therefore sits a bit wide on his shoulders because it was meant to be pulled across more, but I don't think anyone will really notice that....maybe they'll just think he's got narrow shoulders ?!
I made a felt hankerchief to poke out of one of the pockets which bought out the red in the buttons and red stiching on the pockets. I think I'll have to stitch it in because he keeps taking it out and pretending to blow his nose!
It was abit more difficult than what I have been sewing because of the inside facings and collar, but mum took the kids out for the day so I could really concentrate and get stuck into it. It made it sooooooo much easier to get it done, thanks mum!
I have also made myself a dress for the occassion, but I'll wait until tomorrow to get a few snap shots of it. If the day is anything like today, it is going to be beautiful, the sun is shining, birds are singing.....I love Spring :)
