Please meet Silver. He is 4 years old and his dad, Josh Finkey loves his son with all his heart.
They recently purchased new Gi’s (name for the uniform) for all the kids in his Jui Jitsu class. Silver is the smallest guy there and with the smallest size purchased, it still just swallowed him.
It is still big (as you can see from the pictures), but it is way better than it was.
I took off the waist band, shorten the crotch seam which took out some of the extra bulk. Replaced the waist band — big 15 inch waist, so it stays up when he tumbles. Of course the length was shorten, but not to cover up the awesome patches.
The jacket — while it is still huge — got the sleeves shorten and at least, Silver can wear it now.
Silver was so happy, as he loved his new uniform, but it was sooo big that he could not tumble and do the activities that he needed. It was just too restrictive.
Happy boy and happy dad left my sewing room. He can now wear his new uniform. Overall effect was priceless.
Love Josh so much for making such wonderful memories for his son. Silver will always remember how dad made it go right so that he could wear his new uniform, not just see it hang, with the ‘you gotta grow into it’. Dad made it smaller for him to wear now. Love that daddy.
