We are at the crossroads of clothing choices. My grandson will be 5 next February. His mama would keep him in heirloom clothing forever, I think. But he is long and very lanky and I , of course, do not want him to look foolish or be the target of teasing. At the same time, I do want him well-dressed and age appropriate.
My daughter STILL wants him in jon-jons. Even I think that is pushing the boundaries a bit!! But she says she will dress him like a little boy as long as she can. I certainly cannot argue with that! I would like to see him in the English schoolboy look for fall: wool shorts, a sweater over a shirt, knee socks and a tie. That is where his mother put her foot down, absolutely no tie yet!!
As far as sewing for him goes, there is just nothing out there in the way of patterns for his age, THAT I LIKE!!!! I find myself searching and searching and designing and designing for him and still not quite satisfied.
Here are a few of my favorites that I have made him!
