The fun of dressing a tiny gentleman is in dressing him like a Classic Baby. Think Classic. Baby.
He has some jeans and sweats and all, but when I sew for him, it’s been corduroy and wool and cotton so far. So he looks like a baby instead of a small adult.
So for Christmas, he had corduroy shorts embroidered with turtles on them. And a green heather wool cardigan. And knee socks, too, of course.
The shorts are a free downloadable pattern from Oliver + S available here for sizes 6 mos through 5, and then sizes 5 through 12. It’s easy construction for very basic, elastic waist shorts.
