a hopeful heirloom

I never did get to show you the blessing outfit we made for our Gentleman back in January.
It was a crazy labor of love.
I bought vintage italian linen and velvet ribbon and an out-of-print pattern for it.  (On an ambitious day) but then decided it needed to be lined (which, not being included in the pattern, is still beyond my comfort zone) so I had to call in reinforcements (in the form of my mother taking a day off of work to help me.)

I am beyond pleased with how it turned out.  I hope someday I get to see a grandbaby in it.

Oh, my goodness! What a darling outfit! The Gentleman looks so sweet in it, too. It will definitely be something to cherish.
