Costume Number two, Go, Go Diego Go! for Prince C!


Well it is a very sure thing to say that Price C is growing up waaayyy too fast! This year for Halloween he requested to be Diego from the cartoon. I don't mind him asking to dress up as what he wants be it is the "being able to ask" part that gets me! I knew he would start to grow up I just didn't think it would be this quick. *sigh*



Here are the details of his costume for this year. The hat and vest are both form the Little Things To Sew book. I did change the vest a wee bit and added a metal zipper to look more like Diego's vest. I am very glad I did too; it is way easier for his to use a zipper than buttons. He still doesn't know how to use the buttons. {The only thing saving me when he is trying to take his clothes off! I put his dress shirts on him. ;-) haha} The hat is sideways here but there is a "Diego" logo on both hat and vest.




The pants and shirt are both from Oliver + S Field Trip pattern. He has worn both shirt and pants a ton already. He really loves these pants! The are the size 18-24 months. They are a bit big but they should fit for a while. 



The perfect outfit for my explorer little boy. He is off to have an adventure of his very own.
A good friend of mine said that she blinked and her daughter grew up, I think I must have blinked here too.


Happy Sewing!

  3. I'm preparing to sew the same Little Things to Sew vest and love your idea of using a zipper instead of buttons. Could you share how you inserted the zipper and at what stage in constructing the vest? Was it difficult? Thank you for your help.

    1. Sorry I just seen this tonight, crazy busy here! I sewn the zipper on when sewing the vest main to the lining. I basted the zipper in pace then placed the main to lining right sides together then stitched it. When flipped the zipper was ready to. (sew the zipper in like a piping)
