I always think and dream about making my son a little suit jacket, but did not want to start because it would take so long with lots of little details. I did not want to put in all the work and then have him grow out of it quickly or stain it immediately. By using an old men's suit jacket, you get some of the fun details without the time and advanced sewing skills.
It is so fun to dress little boys up even if sometimes it is not that practical. Sometimes I indulge myself creatively and just make the cool jacket! I would love to see this in a black suit and black satin bias binding. It would look like a stunning tux! Or if you decide to make your own bias binding, you can use the same fabric to make matching pants!
