Actually I found SHORTS to re-purpose, but I SHOULD have looked harder for pants. WHY???? Because then I could have made him a matching pair for pants. As it was, I only had enough fabric for the vest. SOOO I guess I will have to make another one:) HMMM..better head to Value Village Again!!!
This tutorial was great. Easy to follow and well explained with pictures. I LOVE PICTURES!!!! There are only 2 things I would do differently. Both having to do with the top of the vest. It tucks under the onesie flap, which works great. BUT when the neck moves or gets pulled, the raw edges of the top of the unfinished vest show. I did not like that...so I sewed a few stiches on the top flap through the vest...just to keep it all closed up. I should have either made the vest tops narrower or folded them under and finished the tops off. That is my only complaint. I guess that is REALLY only 1 thing I would change...
I think this would be SUCH a fun baby shower gift. Quick and easy. PLUS who doesn't love to dress their baby up:)
So for the sophisticated 6 month old....SUCCESS!!!! Perfect for a morning at church, and comfy enough for an afternoon in the yard. BTW....I LOVE THIS LITTLE BOY!!!!!
