This little suit is for a 'grand-student'. Luke is the first son of Marlee, a former kindergarten student of mine whose parents are my dear friends. I first met Marlee when she and her twin sister were just 18 months old! I remember that sunny day like it was yesterday. The staff of the new school we were opening got together for a family picnic and Jil and Bob arrived with their three blonde, blue-eyed beauties. Time is so relative, isn't it? It seems like I blinked my eyes and almost 25 years have gone by!

I used self-made mini piping everywhere I could, to fancy this up a bit.
