Then I was cruising through one of my favorite thrift stores and found voila! a vintage navy trench coat, double-breasted with a belt in exactly Ben's size for just (yeah, I already told you in the title) three dollars!
As if that was not enough, the coat has a zip-out lining, so we're hoping it will be a spring and fall coat, too.
Wish I could find a little man's cap to go with it.
In the meantime, I am sewing a pair of green plaid Sunday pants for him. Yes, truly, and I will show you pictures when they're done. The boy likes to dress up and I will aid and abet him as long as he will let me.
