This is my friend Katie's son (HI KATIE!). His name is actually Vito, and he's a third generation Vito. Isn't V3 an awesome nick name?
Anywho...V3 recently turned 1, and in true Alida fashion I waited until the morning of the birthday party to start on his present. I knew a rockin kid like Vito would need a rockin outfit for his big day, so I used Lil Blue Boo's Sienna pattern and modified it with tapered sleeves and tee shirt length. If there is a more versatile pattern on the internet I would love to see it because I haven't found anything that comes close to being as awesomely versatile as the sienna pattern! The pants are just basic toddler pants with cool stripes down the sides and a draw string.
I forgot to snap photos of it before I gave it to him (probably because I was still sewing it as we ran out the door for the party!) so I snagged this one off of Facebook.
I fear I'm setting a bad precedence here, so many of my friend's kiddos have birthdays coming up...but then again I'm far too cheap to go to the store and buy something. Buying something is so 2008.
