Dior Homme Inspired Baby Outfit for Logan | Handmade Fashion at Candy & Bagel

Dior Homme inspired baby outfit is complete! I knitted the vest last weekend during my ballet recital and then completed the shirt and pants last week, whenever Logan took a nap. There was that one day he took 2-hour nap back to back so I got 4 hours of sewing time! I guess he really wanted a new outfit too! :D

Today is Logan's 100th day!

At Candy & Bagel today, we're celebrating my first human baby's 100th day! Koreans celebrate this day 1) because infant mortality rate was so high back in the old days that surviving 3 months/100 days was a big deal and 2) 100th day after birth is actually exactly 365 days after conception (the TimeHop app actually proved this today). 

So! To share this joyful day with other knitters, I decided to make all my independently sold patterns available for free today until tomorrow! You heard me. Take 100% off from all my patterns on Ravelry with this discount code: Logan100

{Sewing} Planning formalwear for Baby Logan

Sewing, In My Shopping Cart, WIPs & FOsJean ChungComment

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
