Trachtenjacke: Must-Have for the Tourist's Nephew

Part 2 of Nephew #8's gift was at least one article of clothing that... ahem... I should have knit for him personally. This is a traditional jacket, or Trachtenjacke, often seen in southern Germany and throughout Austria.
Add to this charming and simple jacket a shirt stitched up with Edelweiss:
Cute combination!
Throw some Lederhosen into the mix:

Violá, a wonderful outfit for a 3-year-old!
I can't wait until Nephew #8 is 3!
In the mean time, hope to duplicate this knit jacket myself. Or I could go back to Innsbruck and purchase another. Innsbruck is a delightful city...
