Love Notions Vanguard Set

Two boy posts in a row- hallelujah!!!  Boys clothes are kinda boring and they tend to get overlooked for all the cute girly things I’d rather be sewing.  Until now…

I showed you an amazing hoodie yesterday on my big kid.  Today my littlest guy gets to show off the Vanguard Set by Love Notions (affl. links).  It’s on sale now through Sunday, March 6th.

It’s a versatile top and pants set that any boy will love.   It comes in sizes 2t-14 to fit all the little boys in your life.

The details on these pants are so extraordinary!  Big cargo pockets are perfect for storing all kinds of little boy treasures (like rocks and wood chips, of course).

Side slash pockets, knee darts, and a faux fly all add to the details that take these pants to the next level.

Elastic ankle cuffs and a knit waistband make these as comfy as they are cool!

The tee has so, so many fun color blocking options.

I went for a simple short sleeve version but there is a color blocked long sleeve option too!

I did the crewneck version but a v-neck and hood option are included.

I love that you can use this pattern all year long!  I’m excited to make a long-sleeve hooded version come fall.

This set is just the ultimate in little boy fashion.

For the tee I used my favorite cotton lycra solids from Raspberry Creek Fabrics and Purple Seamstress.

This amazing fabric for the pants is duck cloth from Hobby Lobby.  I originally bought it to make pillows but I love it as ‘Explorer Pants’!

My sweet little guy wasn’t feeling so great when we did this shoot.  He was so excited to get outside but this shot is so sweet and sad at the same time.  When your littles are sick their eyes say it all!

The fresh air was great for him and he still couldn’t help but be my cute, goofy little buddy!

Make sure you pick up the pattern here!  Another Love Notions pattern that will be in constant rotation at our house!
