Navy suit and white shirt

Added Dec 8, 2008

by verypurplepe...

Tokyo, Japan






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.

    I just spent dinner with a friend trying to explain to her about this burdastyle site and specifically all the absolute-ly adorable creations you have made! I can not believe how perfect your creations are! I love this suit and all of your school creations for him.

    Cool, your son must take you for granted now with all the great clothes you make for him. Tomorrow he will need a pair of shorts for his football match and within 15 minutes you’d make one!:) Great creation!

    Really cute, I love this! It looks a little bit like the traditional bavarian “leather trousers”. Really cool!
