{Sewing} Planning formalwear for Baby Logan

Now that Logan is almost 3 months (5 more days!), we feel a little more comfortable bringing him to fancier places. We have a friend's wedding coming up next weekend, and I already bought a cute onesie with bowtie print and black pants but that one outfit really started me off thinking about fancy outfits for my little man.

I saw this Dior Homme collection in the recent Zoo magazine and instantly started picturing Logan in that outfit! It's simple, chic, and so grown up! 

 

Last week, I went on Michael Levine's website to shop for some fabrics (since I haven't done any long distance driving with Logan yet, I opted for online shopping instead). I found these fabrics and thought it would make a perfect Dior-inspired outfit for Logan!

And of course, the vest will be knitted. I love the subtle poofiness of the vest - I think it's done in double knit fabric? But the poofiness reminds me of Logan's small but round belly! I can't wait to cast on for this vest in black and white.

It would be even more awesome if I dress him this and go to an event where someone actually NOTICES that this was Dior-inspired. :D
