Little Leisure Suit

I made this suit for Ewan before we went to Hawaii. It is out of the softest tattersall plaid.

The pattern is from Ottobre Magazine. I have subscribed for almost 2 years and this is my first project.

Their designs are so cute and light years ahead of most pattern companies... Burda is excluded from that comment. The magazine comes with all the patterns all sizes printed on 3 sheets of paper stapled in the middle. It does require a bit of concentration to make sure you are tracing on the correct lines. I apparently selected the wrong hem line and the suit wound up with not much of an inseam and a lot of diaper showing.... so today I added some bands to the leg openings to create some length. This is my first little man sewing project, and I think it turned out pretty well.

the suit is adorable! i've been using ottobre for a few years and love the patterns. my only regret is i did not have these patterns when my children were babies.
