Easter Shortalls (Von Trapp Style)

Now that I am posting pictures, I realize that one of the legs is caught up in all of the photos. I promise they are actually the same length.
Two years ago I made a clown costume out of this adorable Hushabye fabric by Moda. With the leftover fabric, I decided that I would put it with the rest of my fabric to someday use to make dresses for a future daughter. I just had my third boy and the doctor told me that we are done having babies. After coming to terms with this news, I decided that I would no longer wait to sew things for a little girl but start making cute clothes for my three adorable sons. I decided to start with an Easter outfit for my new little three-month-old. I used one of his rompers as a general guide when making this pattern. Yes, the fabric is a little girly, but he is so young. Besides, they used to dress baby boys in pink and dresses and this short-all gettup is WAY manlier than that, don't cha think?! Once it was complete, my husband pointed out to me that it looked like one of the outfits that Maria in Sound of Music made for the Von Trapp children out of her curtains. Oops! All the same, I think he looks charming.



 I made matching shoes, but I think they really do push it a little too far into the girly realm.

I made this little number from scratch. I'll post the tutorial soon. I just wanted to make sure I posted this in time to share at a few places. Thanks!

Those are sooooo adorable. I am in love. The fabric is to die for. They are great for a boy, but I do see what you are saying about the shoes. Wh, at least he's not wearing a gown like they did in the 1800s.
