Finally a pattern for little boys that is easy to make, comfortable and they love to wear. This is the perfect Sunday outfit for little boys and just wait for all the compliments to pour in as you proudly say “I made it myself”. There are lots of cute fabrics for boys but not many patterns. Dad won’t call this one too sissy either.

This detailed PDF pattern has 6 versions and 9 sizes from NB - 5T.

Each design is appliquéd to a basic t-shirt then additional embellishments are added to make it look more realistic.

VIEW 1 is a vest with a bow tie and fake hankie in pocket. Everyone just loves the mustache fabric.

VIEW 2 is a vest with a “windy” tie. This is my favorite design.

View 3 is a vest with a dress tie underneath the vest. This is a basic style and so easy to make.

View 4 is for the sports fan. I used Collegiate ribbon and added fake buckles on the suspenders. For the “windy” tie I “fussy cut” the fabric to get some of the college logos into the tie design. I think this style really shows the tie well.

There are 6 ways to mix and match the vest, suspenders and ties. The fun is endless.
