Little Sis’ Wedding: Mr. V’s suit

February 17, 2014

At the time of my baby sister’s wedding (June 2013), my son was only 1-1/2 years old.  My sister had chosen a khaki suit for her groom and the groomsmen/nephews, but the rental suits didn’t go down to my son’s size.  I can hardly believe that I actually did it, but I made him a suit!  If you missed the flower girl dresses, see them HERE.

My Mom found the perfect color and texture fabric in Portland for the suit. I used the Little Man pants and vest and the Little Man Suit Jacket patterns from Peekaboo Pattern Shop.  I was so nervous about making this suit that I waited to start it until my Mom was going to be at my house for the weekend, working on our bridesmaid dresses!  I just needed the moral support and wanted here there in case I couldn’t figure something out or royally screwed something up!

It turned out so cute!  I made him the 18mo size based on his measurements but there was NO growing room, I was grateful he didn’t have a major growth spurt and it fit for the wedding!

It was a long day for him, the day of the wedding, so the photographer didn’t get as many good shots of him in his suit as I liked but hey he was little and it was HOT!

Here are the 3 boys walking down the aisle, and probably the best professional picture of the front of V’s suit.  I was lucky enough to get the binky out of V’s mouth before he walked down the aisle, I wasn’t about to fight him for the dump truck.  It got some good laughs from the guests.  And hey at least he is smiling!
