Navy suit and white shirt

Sidra needed a navy knee-length pants and a white shirt for the school concert, so I thought I’d just made them myself instead of buying some.

The shirt fabric is white cotton with some interesting thin pintucks on it. The pants fabric is navy thick cotton, and I also made a matching jacket to the pants. For added warmth, I lined the jacket with blue flannel that I cut out of an Ikea blanket.

I made the pattern for the pants myself by tracing one of Sidra’s pants, and then adding pocket details and turned-up hem. The shirt pattern is from a Japanese pattern book, and I’ve used this pattern to make Sidra’s striped shirt. The pattern for the jacket is from the same Japanese pattern book, and I added a pair of buttons to the big pocket.

I think the suit and shirt turned out really nice, Sidra (and me) really loves it.


Shirt and jacket patterns are fromĀ R&D.M.Co-boys&girls.

    Thank you everyone!
    The pants and shirt were needed for the ‘candle service’, where the kids sang Christmas songs, lit some candles, then they walked in pairs together. Well, actually I don’t really know what it means, but it sure was fun!

    Anyway, there was a play before the ‘candle service’ where the kids played ‘Peter Pan’, and Sidra was cast as Michael Darling (Wendy’s youngest brother) :)
