As I told you in my last post I now have a legit reason to indulge in all the prettiness that is baby clothes.
I bought this pattern about 5 years ago – the first time it looked to be an addition to the family.
And it’s been unopened and forgotten since.But this summer (after the happy news) I dug it out again.
I ‘ve never done baby clothes before, and are quite a newbie at sewing in yersey.
So the decision to leap onto the kids clothes train was a bit of a scary one. I decided to start with a bodice for the little girl (yeah, pick the most difficult thing you cold find, why don’t you…).
Then I got to work.
I had some trouble deciding on the size for the ankle cuffs. Since the pattern called for whole foot pieces I couldn’t get any help from there.After some hesitation I decided on the bigger ones – better to big then to small.
I finished the bodice by trimming around the neck and armholes with the red bias tape.
Pattern: Burda Kids 9636
Fabric: 0,5 m of cotton yersey.
Notions: Thread, 7 snaps (front and back), 60 cm of bias tape and about 10 cm of red knit.
Time: 2 hours from drafting the pattern to finished.
Cost: about 100 sek – How knew that baby fabric and notions would be so expensive… I’ve made whole dresses for less.
Final thoughts: I’t was really fun to create such a quick and cute pieces. I liked it so much I immediately made another one (in about half the time) for a friends newborn son.
