Little Boy's Suit Reconstruction

Another rummage sale find and this one is for my little man. I was not going to do any alteration to this suit because I thought I would just wait until my little boy gets big enough that it will fit him someday. But I changed my mind and thought it altering it so it would fit and he could wear it to the graduation last Saturday, the 16th of May. I was a little bit apprehensive, but I thought that if I messed up it won't hurt too much since I didn't pay much for the suit. And so I did and here's how it went.
What I did was using one of Harley's long sleeve shirt and used it as my template and then I took the sleeves off, the two pockets, cut the length off and started a new hem.

(I saved these pockets to put back later on.)

Sniff! Sniff! And cut the length of the suit since it was way too long, just making sure that my little man won't drown in his suit. LOL! I also took the sleeves off and cut to the right length and sewed it back.

Stitch, stitch, and more stitch and here comes the finished product! I even made him a cute little necktie which I forgot to take a photo, oh well! LOL! Anyway, here is our little man wearing his new altered suit and necktie to the graduation. Looking smart, son!
