|Shawn 30 ~ Twins 6 months|
|Shawn 4 ~ Miranda 18 months|
26 years ago our son Shawn (age 4) was in our friend's wedding. Shawn's Daddy officiated the wedding, I coordinated the wedding and poor Miranda was sick at the wedding. (she had a cold)
Randy borrowed a suit, I borrowed a friend's dress and we bought a suit for Shawn.
Of course I still have that suit after all these years.
Well, when I found this on Pinterest, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with that suit for Shawn's twin son's wedding attire. Shawn & Nicole were thrilled.
I mean how cool that both boys would be wearing something their Daddy wore as a little boy!
Here's what I started with...
I couldn't use the actual vest because of the faux pockets, but the pant legs allowed me to not only sew both vests, but also line the vests with the same fabric.
I even found three more buttons almost exactly like the original three.
I was SO pleased with how they turned out!
Jonah was so pleased that he decided to take a bite out of Nathan's vest.
Which did not please Nathan in the least... "oh Mimi, what's a brother to do?"
HERE THEY ARE!!! ~ looking all dapper dan with their Momma & Daddy, big sisters and the Bride & Groom ~ PRECIOUS! Oh, and PRICELESS too ~
as their wedding attire did not cost a cent!
Tomorrow I'll be posting a bunch of candid wedding pics as seen through the eyes of our guests!
I'm linking up with the following Linky Parties ~
