Bela's Baptizing-Suit

Added Oct 22, 2009

Germany, Germany






My grandson Bela, almost 3 years old, was baptized last Sunday. Therefor I made a suit for him and used BWF patterns from 4/2003, No. 151, 152 and 153 for the Jacket, vest and shirt, No. 155 for the trousers. The patterns 151, 152 and 153 are similar, except a few details like cuffs for the shirt. The rose on the jacket-yoke is from my daughter’s wedding gown.

Material Notes

wool, white cotton-piquee for the shirt, dark brown acetate lining, a short zipper, different press-buttons for the jacket, the shirt and the trousers




Garment Type
Classic, Preppy, Romantic
Shirting, Suiting

      thank you for your kindly comment. It really was a lot of work, but I’m happy to have done it, Bela is so cute! They are not Hungarian, but my daughter loves the name “Bela” so much.
