I’ve been doing some sewing lately. There are/were a couple of pieces of Liberty cotton lawn lying around that I thought would be nice for blouse-y shirts for M, and I also want to make a sweatshirt for her. So I hit Etsy to look for some patterns. This is the pattern I used for the shirt above. It’s so girly! M doesn’t have many really girly clothes, because I don’t like the ruffles and puff shoulders and gathers you see on a lot of typical baby girl outfits.
How sweet is she? She’s wearing some little shorts, even though it’ll be a long time before she can wear those around here. I was worried that the pattern of the fabric would be too crazy, but I think she pulls it off!
I haven’t made the sweatshirt yet, but I got this raglan-sleeve shirt pattern and made a little thermal shirt to test it out. With the sweatshirt, I’ll do ribbed cuffs on the arms and waist instead of just folding and hemming. I might still put cuffs on the sleeves of this shirt… or I’ll just leave it as it is. That would be easier!
Too cute! I can’t stand it. When she looks up like this and sticks her chin out, I feel like I can see the toddler she’ll be someday. The collar of this pattern is a bit wide, since it’s not lapped and has to fit over a big baby head. I don’t love how wide it is, but it’s much easier to sew — I can picture making lots of these to put over short-sleeves onesies when the temperature is mild!
