I made the pants from black canvas material. They're like the camo pants - no fussy details, but I did include belt loops. I haven't made him a belt for them yet.
He won't be wearing this t-shirt with the vests when I give them to my son, but I didn't have the white shirt made just yet.
The sweater vest is a simple and easy free pattern from Janet Longaphie.
It isn't seamless, but it only has two small side seams to be done. Furthermore, I tried the slip-stitch method of seaming these, and it's so much easier for me than the regular way.
I haven't given these to my son yet. (I had to sneak Alex away for pictures while my son slept.) I plan to give them one at a time as they are needed. I'm pretty sure the red one is going to be saved for his Christmas outfit.
It would be so easy to duplicate-stitch a design onto these vests, too. I may give it a try sometime in the future. If I do, I'll be sure to share the results.
