The little boy does look a little like Gilby from the back.
I couldn't find any leather so chose faux leather fabric which had faux sheepskin on the reverse, I decided to use the sheepskin as the outer side of the waistcoat and the 'leather' side for the pocket on the back. I used some embroidery stitches on my machine to stitch a pattern around the edge of the waistcoat. Finishing the waistcoat off with an old wooden toggle from my button tin :)
The photo I have of Gilby wearing the waistcoat was a little too dark to use
With a new grandson due at the beginning of May I have been busy knitting and sewing for him too
This little jacket is from a pattern book I bought when my children were young and the jacket is a favourite of mine, knitted in one piece and can be worn with the button at the front or back. It's a French pattern book by Pingouin.
