A Handmade Christmas: Isaac's Christmas Outfit
I am busy getting some Christmas outfits made for the kids. First up is Isaac's. Well, I still have his button-front shirt to make....but I am considering it almost done.
The cardigan is the Greenpoint Cardigan pattern from Hey June, which I am in love with on him. I think this is my third or fourth Greenpoint Cardi and I am not stopping anytime soon. I have now made them for all the kids (I will show you a chevron one soon).
And Isaac's pants are part of Andrea's A Go To Christmas and were made using Melly Sews Blank Slate boys pants. They have a working fly, which she gives GREAT directions for, and cute little welt pockets on the back. I am doing the boys in gray and navy blue and Hannie and I in lilac and navy blue, which is a bit different for Christmas but I am liking it so far.
Be sure to check out some great deals as part of A Go To Christmas where there are all things patterns. (And I want all of them....seriously....you will be oohing and ahhing over them.)
Now, it's on to finishing his button down shirt and then to some sewing for me. I am making a lilac herringbone wool pencil skirt and a cream blouse to match. The muslins are made for each....I just need to fit them and then move to real fabrics.
Hopefully there will be some sewing time this weekend.
Are you making Christmas outfits? Are you going traditional or outside of the box?
