His first tux

Last night my daughter and I had some play time with this guy for a fitting.  I've been sewing a special outfit for his blessing.  Sewing such tiny little armholes is very tricky.  Just enough room for my presser foot...no fingers and barely pins.  I finally hand sewed the sleeves in and then machined them.  But the challenge was worth it for my newest grandchild.  I still have to add a soft satiny blue bow tie and buttons in the back and he'll be ready for his big day. 

BTW, the quilt he's laying on was his great grandfather's baby quilt. 


P.S....I just had to edit my post to add a photo of the final product...all finished and pressed....not as cute as the baby...but cute.

HI Annette - I think I used the same pattern for my grandson's blessing outfit. The collar gave me fits cuz it seemed too big so I cut it down a bit. He's adorable!
