A good friend of mine had a his first child a year ago. He works in wardrobe, so he always gives me cool clothes and materials to work with. I wanted to make him something nice for his son's first birthday.
I decided to create it out of his old clothes.
I forgot to take a pic before I cut into it, but I took one of his old western style shirts ...
And one of his old black t-shirts (size mens large).
I took the western shirt and turned it into pants and the t-shirt I sized way down using all the existing hem lines from the sleeves and the bottom. I also cut out the original neck line and sized it down and re-attached it to the shirt. I added a little bleach design of a body boarder to the front because he is a great body boarder and I know he wants his son to follow in his footsteps. I'm pretty sure this will be his first body boarder shirt, since they don't make them this small. :)
I sized the mens clothes down to fit an 18mth size.
I thought the pockets would look super cute on his bum. :)
