Little Hunter

Good friends of ours recently had a baby boy--their first boy after two girls, so I knew I wanted to make an outfit.
The only thing was I wanted it to be something a little different than just a plain pair of pants and shirt.
It needed something original and fitting.
 

With the last name of 'Hunter' and the dad's moose hunting adventures as inspiration, I came up with a fun freezer paper stencil.
Some fun fonts and a moose head silhouette from Shutterstock and I ended up with this graphic.



The shirt is a pattern from Ottobre (3/2013, Brave Fireman, #9). It originally had short sleeves, but I lengthened them, and omitted the sleeve cuffs.
The pants are from Go-To Patterns--the Tree Climber Trousers. (affiliate link)
I think this is one of my favourite pants patterns--quick to sew up, but the fun topstitching details really make it stand out!
 


 
I think the fabric is a type of suiting--I bought it years ago, and have used it for pants before.
I love the softness of the fabric and how the contrasting topstitching stands out on the fabric.

 
Congrats again G & L!
