These were a 2 year birthday gift for my boyfriend’s nephew, sewn from Simplicity 4417 from 1953.
They took a lot longer than expected and the rabbit patch wasn’t exactly a cake-walk. I did Hong Kong seams and the buttonholes came out quite well. The boyfriend picked the fabric and buttons and I’m also using this same fabric for a vintage swimsuit!
