What are you most proud of? I was most proud when Will, 4yrs. old, tried on the jacket and didn't want to take it off. His mother had to pull it off of him twice. He stayed in the mirror posing because he was so proud of his jacket! I didn't have to make the pants because the bride had already ordered his pants from a tuxedo shop, along with the belt to wear with this. This was a 3-day notice deal. So, I'm extremely happy that it was a perfect fit!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and use the proper pressing tools if you're using velvet like I did here.

Absolutely ADORABLE!! I hope he gets to play in it after the wedding and that it becomes a cherished keepsake. It certainly deserves to!! Wonderful work!!

Thanks! My pleasure was seeing him in it and not wanting to take it off...not the typical action of a 4 year old! ;o)
