This is the same pattern as last time, but this time I used view c.  

I usually try to stay away from novelty prints, but the whales just killed me dead (and so did the fox print... I just haven't decided what to do with that one yet).

I don't *love* the orange, in my mind it was going to be a brighter, more primary shade of orange.  But apparently my local shop's button/snap inventory has been severely diminished.  In fact, this was the only orange snap and also only two orange button sizes.

And I should have taken more care in lining up the whales, but what's done is done.

I lined the yoke again like I did with the romper, and this time it is a legit 3month.  I should invest in a few smaller sized tags... meh...

I did work out the collar/facing issue a bit better this time.  That means next time I'll be pro, right?  ha!

The thought of matching the print for the pocket made my brain hurt, so I went with a contrast.

A little piping at the yoke, because who doesn't love piping?

Since it's all about the details, baby, a contrast under collar also.

Next up:  Tops for Abby (per her demand request).

    I am feeling a bit sad we will not be able to sit on the sofa together and feed our babies, maybe by Skype?

  2. Yep, there it is!! So cute! Love that fabric and I think the orange snaps are perfect! The details are lovely. I love understated boys' clothing, I really do ...
