Because I have knowledge of how to make patterns, I just had to make a sailor suit for my son to wear. It really impressed people at the Christmas Eve party, which boosted my ego. The embroidery designs I put on the outfit came with my embroidery machine, so it was nice that I didn’t have to purchase any designs. It is made of Kona cotton, and the stripes on the sides of the legs and around the cuffs were made using single fold white bias tape. The white fabric for the collar was just some extra fabric I found in my stash. The buttons were not the ones I had originally purchased, for those became lost (I recently found them too; Go figure). I’m not sure how often he’ll wear it, but it was fun to make.
