The top is a simple v-neck shirt with some added elements to make it more dressy without compromising comfort. I added red hems to the sleeves and bottom of the shirt, they give it a layered look, and added a collar. And then I added a heart argyle applique, which I'm using as inspiration to make a valentine lap quilt soon!
The shorts are made with 2 shades of grey corduroy which were upcycled from pairs of pants. I added a heart shaped pocket to the back, and heart shaped knee patches. There are patch pockets on the front with a hand stitched heart. They have red top-stitching as well! They have a simple elastic waist, which makes them easy to put on, but a faux-fly for a more dressed up style.
What do you think????
I'm really happy with it! My only concern is that white shirts don't stay white for long on this kid, but for a holiday outfit, I don't need it to last forever! He seems to like it!
Also adding this to the linky party at Project Run and Play!
I'm entering this outfit in The Sew Off at Nap Time Crafters. Wish me luck!
