This is a white shirt and navy pants that my son needed for the school concert. I added a matching jacket to the pants, and lined it with blue flannel from an Ikea blanket.
I made the pattern for the pants myself by tracing one of his pants, and then adding pocket details and turned-up hem. The shirt and jacket patterns are from a Japanese pattern book. I changed the pocket a little bit and added a pair of buttons.
I think the suit and shirt turned out really nice, my son (and me) really loves it.
