Won't he be handsome?

Dressed in blue with yellow trim? I love blue and yellow. This is a quick and easy baby gift to have. Blue Imperial batiste, Madeira applique collar. Whip stitch piping on the collar and cuffs. And to top it off two precious MOP buttons on the pleated front. And for the first time I used Snap Setter tool by Snap Source. The pattern is Pleated Bubble by Creations By Michie. So if you need a quick gift, this is great.


  1. Nice to see you are starting on boy clothes mom. Although I think you've got awhiles to go before you catch up with the girl stash.

  2. This is so beautiful, Martha. I love it's simplicity. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. I LOVE this outfit Martha. It is perfect with a capitol "P". I need to make a boy gift for a friend who is having her first grandbaby in December. I would love to do something like this. Is this going in the hope chest? Oh and by reading your daughter's posts, I know who she takes after! She sounds just like you. I bet your house is a riot when all of you are together!

    Love your neck......

  4. Thanks guys
    AD-I am working on the boy ideas. Any input?

    Bunny thanks. I think it is sweet as you said in its simplicity.

    Lori, I am nothing compared to this crowd I birthed. What is a riot is when they are all together and feed off of one another. You can not get a word in edgewise.

  5. this is too sweet for words!!!

  6. Hi Martha,

    This is Jenny Savage. I haven't sew heirloom in ages and I decided to live vicarouly, so went in search of blogs. I was thrilled to find your site. Yes, this is handsome suit. I haven't done much in the way of boy things, so I'll tuck this idea away for a rainy day. One question, I love the maderia collar. Are both fabrics imperial?


  7. Hi Jenny! Good to see ya. Yes they both are Imperial. I peeked at your blog. those can not be your girls. THey are all grown up.

    Sara, thanks so much.

  8. Thanks Martha, and yes they grew up, and the oldest left for college, the nerve!;) I've had more time to look over your blog, wow great tutorials, stunning eye candy (than highlights your talent)and your great sense of humor. I'll be back often.

  9. thanks. That baby girl, the nerve of her to leave like that. :)

  10. That is beautiful! You do such nice work.
