Finneus Sweater and Pants Baby Gift4:00 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.
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!
