As I stated way back in January, this year will be filled with jersey and snaps (in stead of ball gowns and corsets).
I promise I won’t bore you with it all, but for this one post, showing my first batch of baby clothes for my newborn child.
Lets just start by stating that – Buying nice baby fabric is hard!
Especially if you don’t want “blue cars” or “pink princesses”, but still would like some color in your kids wardrobe.
Although I live how a small amount of fabric (like 1 m) basically gives you a whole set of clothes, including body, pants, romper and hat.
Alongside the fabrics I also bought a few basic patterns, which I would use as a base and the alter for size and style as I grew more comfortable working with stretch fabric and baby sizing.Bodice taken in to make for a smaller size.
Al of these pieces are first tries at the pattern, so a lot of strange sizing is going on which I will have to fix until next time. I find it really strange how different pattern company’s make a standard baby size 56 in totally different size/proportions.
Anyway – this is what I’ve made (so far)
A simple hat
2 rompers (and a third one on its way)
And here are proof that, at least one (so far) of the pieces, fits my baby boy.He is 5 weeks by now (OMG!)
It’s so fast and rewarding to make these clothes.
I mean one body in an hour, and pants and hats even less, how could that not be fun.
