Finneus Sweater and Pants Baby Gift

4:00 AM



I have two friends that recently had baby boys.
So I thought it would be fun to make each of them a little outfit for this fall/winter.

A charcoal and mustard sweater with little baby dress pants.

I've been wanting to sew my idea for this little sweater with the two-tone collar for a while.

The shawl collar is inspired by Danielle's Little Man Tuck look that won Week 2 of Project Run and Play (season 3) she hand stamped the herringbone on that sweater too!
The contrasting buttons, wrists, and waist chunk are like The Daniels tee from Film Petit: The Birds.


These outfits are size at 12 months for this winter, but I tried it on Isabella just for fun.
She's wearing 6 month clothes right now, so I think these should hopefully fit these boys in a few months!
I tried to slick her hair down with a part on the side to look like a boy.
 Apparently she's not into cross-dressing.  
Yuck Mom!


 The pants are simple elastic waist baby pants.
I did add faux back flap pockets with gray piping and contrasting button to make them feel a little more dressy.

The shawl collar that folds into a button placket took me a few tries to get right.  
I cut the fabric on the bias and did the two-tone effect with a center-back seam.  
I hope the asymmetry of the split collar using two colors feels cool and modern, not like Two-Face or a jester or something.
My goal was to bring a fun twist into the shawl collar.

Either way, hope it works for the new baby boys!

  14. Oh wow! That collar is so impressive. It took me a while to figure out just the shawl...I can't believe you added the button placket too! And the detail on those pants...wow. Lucky friend to get this gift. Also, your daughter is so pretty that she is still very obviously a girl even in a boy's outfit!

    1. Oh thanks Danielle, it was a pain to draft! Or at least I felt like a big challenge for me. I actually kept thinking, "I stink at this! It only took Danielle two drafts, and here I am on #4!" I appreciate your comment on izzie looking like a girl. She looks really feminine to me with longer hair and eyelashes, but then the occasional people who say "he's a a cute boy" when she's wearing a pink dress make you wonder. :)

  16. Propane is also a liquid lighter fluid for Zippo refillable lighters. Propane fuel has an even and odorless burn that does not affect the smoking experience.
    Thanks.
