Three-piece Boy Outfit

I had bought some fabric at Wal-mart. I am very bad at remembering what kind of fabric I buy and who made it or produced it. So anyway, when I saw this fabric I knew it would be perfect for some church pants for my growing boy. I bought extra because I wanted to make him a hat to match it. And then while I was on Pinterest I started seeing some cute photos of boys wearing vests.

Light bulb moment! Make him a vest to match the hat and pants for a completely adorable outfit.

So I got to work.

*Warning* This post will be loaded with photos. Enjoy!

The cute little newsboy hat. Free pattern found here.

The vest pattern found here. It's free and a size 5T.

I made pants from using Dana's free pattern. I added to her pattern to produce a better fit for my son. The pattern is a 2T-3T. I added around the seam allowances to give him more room, added to the top of the waist because he has a long torso and to allow for sewing mistakes by me, and adjusted the length for my long legged boy. I love how they turned out.
I didn't make this shirt. I am not the good, yet. I did, however, find it in my son's closet when I went looking for a shirt to go under the vest. To my surprise I found the perfect one. I knew he had button up shirts that were too big for him but this one was the perfect color. I had bought it last year at one of the children's consignment sales and purposely searched through the bigger sizes to find cute things for him to grow into.

When you put all three together (four if you count the shirt) with an agreeable little boy, you get this.

And this---
And more of this---

More handsome-ness---

Black and white, and Sepia adorableness:

We didn't have the proper shoes to go with this outfit so I opted for his black light-up tennis shoes. Or "batman shoes" as they are known in our house.

He likes his new clothes and that makes me happy.
