    Thoughts on cute shapes for preschool aged boys? Things that could be adapted from Oliver+S patterns?

    I was thinking of shorts or pants with suspenders? Other ideas? Ways to modify an OS pattern?

    My boys (3) are too big for bubbles but I’d like some similarly cutesy things for them before they get too tooo big

    I had thought of adding a cuff to the Sketchbook to make knicker bockers http://www.pinterest.com/pin/73676143878629714/

    The Sailboat short are perfect to add a simple suspender strap too, in fact that pattern has an old world feel to it.

    How tall are they? Could they carry off a Music Class blouse with Puppet Show shorts? Perhaps lengthen/tuck the blouse and but button holes on the waist band of the shorts and buttons on the shirt. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/73676143876752495/

    I think colour is the key, something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/73676143876427646/

    I have quite a few pins on this board you may like http://www.pinterest.com/fiveandcounting/boys/

    Sounds like a fun challenge.

    those are all so lovely, thanks!!

    i think they are so big now the music class blouse/puppet show shorts is no longer appropriate…(cue psychological evaluation of what it means that I want to dress my only kids to look younger, ha!) . But perhaps just the shorts could work. I just realized I don’t have their size though, I only have the smaller pattern.

    the knickerbocker cuff or the suspenders on the shorts would be a good fit I think.

    Any thoughts on how to make the cuff or how to add suspenders?

    this looks like a good guide for the suspenders, i like them sewn in vs with clips.

    I would button them on rather then sew them on. Also, consider adding some elastic to the back bottom edge of the strap, stretched to fit inside the strap, for ease.

    For the Sketchbook ‘knicker bockers’ I would pleat the bottom of the shorts and add a cuff, like a waistband.

    This is how I would attach it (but to the cuff) http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/this-is-not-best-shorts-pattern.html

    Please let me know if I can be any help. 🙂

    What about the Tea Party Playsuit especially made from some gorgeous striped seersucker?
