Suit for my baby boy

When I first knew about my niece's wedding, first thing I thought was "what will I sew us for the event?!" Yes, that's right! I was so happy to have an excuse to sew some fancy clothes than just the practical ones I've been sewing lately. 


A couple of weeks before the wedding I made the first outfit. And that first outfit was made for the smallest person in this house, my adorable  3m old baby boy. He looks just like a miniature man in his suit and everyone was melting over him. However, he wasn't so happy when I put it on for the first time. I was always a fan of little girls. Dresses and skirts and pretty things, after all, I learnt to sew as I created a full wardrobe for my barbie dolls as a child. Now that I have the chance to sew more often to a boy, I am surprised at how much I enjoy to do it. Before S. I would occasionally sew for my nephew but he wasn't really happy about the things I made him, and I totally understand why.


Back to the suit itself. Nahhhh, I didn't refashion this time. But I was able to use fabric from my stash. The main fabric is light grey with very thin white stripes. I bought it on sales, I guess this year already. For the vest lining I used purple satin I had left after an order (so, free fabric). For the inseam pockets and tie, I used scraps from an adorable quilt fabric. I bought the onesie for 1.99€ and that's all I spent to make it. Buttons were also in my stash forever.


Although I have a couple of vest patterns, none of them went all the way down to size 3M, but that's fine. I grabbed my favourite baby shirt pattern (used it here, here & here) and adjusted it in order to get a vest pattern. It couldn't be better. It was so easy and it's so tiny that I got it sewn in a blink of an eye.


I wasn't as lucky with the pants. I didn't have a pattern smaller than 6M with the design I was searching for, and I didn't care to draft my own this time. I had the perfect pattern, exactly what I wanted in size 6M. I guessed that would work, so I used a Burda pattern for this.


The onesie, as I said before, was store bought. All I had to do was cutting and patch a tie into it. It was a major success all through the party. I didn't try the whole thing on him until the day and as expected, the pants were a bit too large on him, but that's fine, he'll be wearing it for a little longer. The onesie was just the right size and I loved the see it on him.

  1. Olha, babei a roupinha ;o) Nada de camisas e mesmo gravatas de verdade, assim até dá gosto ver um bebé pequeno vestido para uma ocasião especial ;o) O tecido dos passarinhos dá 'o toque' mais bebé e sem esse toque não seria a mesma coisa ;o) Quem disse que só com meninas se consegue roupinhas giras ;o) Para meninos mais crescidos é mais dificil agradar mas O S. vai ter muito que usar peças feitas pela mamã e há-de 'suplicar' para lhe fazeres peças giras e refashions que o farão fazer sentir unico no meio de uma série de meninos ;o)

  2. Eu gosto muito de ver os bebés com roupas a imitar os adultos, mas tb gosto de pensar no seu conforto, por isso a ideia de uma camisa verdadeira para um bebé de 3 meses apenas foi imediatamente colocada de parte. Até agora, estou a gostar de descobrir o que é costurar para o outro sexo. Não acertarei sempre, mas acho que começo a encarrilhar. Os teus tb vão andar muito quentinhos com as coisas lindas que tu fazes!

    1. Obrigado Patrícia! Achei que deveria adicionar algo mais "bebezinho" e resultou bem, creio!

    1. Obrigado Sara. Até agora tenho praticamente tudo o que fiz aos meus filhotes guardado, salvo uma ou duas peças que não gostava lá muito. Custa-me dar estas peças, a roupa que faço para mim dou bem, mas as deles... não dá!

  7. Oh he is the most fashionable 3 month old :) Fabulous suit! Yeah I would not worry about the pants either - too big is better than too small in my books!

  10. Está perfeito! Adoro tudo - bebé incluido :-)
    Eu como tenho imensa dificuldade em costurar para os meus rapazes (como são mais crescidos, acho que isso me serve de desculpa) sei bem como é dificil arranjar os moldes certos, os tecidos, etc. Sempre achei que é bem mais facil para costurar para meninas, mas depois deste teu post acho que vou pensar duas vezes :)

    1. Obrigado. O bebé é o mais giro mas nestas fotos estava a berrar.
      As coisas que costumava fazer para o meu sobrinha (que faz 9 anos daqui a nada) tb nunca eram grande coisa e escolher os tecidos era uma dor de cabeça, mas acho que vou encarrilhando com isto de coser para meninos. também merecem. Força!
