I’ve got a gazillions kids clothes patterns and tons of cute stuff and fabrics laying around. So when my sis announced my niece into the world I was happy.
I won the fabric in my early blog days and picked it with my god child in mind. I was looking for a pattern that’s cute, a bit different, matching her personality and also fits as I couldn’t take measures. I ended up with this cute pattern from The Sewing Rabbit.
The hardest was probably cutting the pattern. I should have taped the sheets together (as instructed) and then cut out the size. Well I went the hard way and it still worked.
Sewing with only cotton was a nice change. It is so much easier than jersey or other fabric. I don’t know how long it took me overall but it was not that long. It’s the ironing in between that’s time consuming.
What I learned:
- ironing is important and actually helps sewing however it is a boring task
- you should always buy more fabric because it might not be enough (happened almost here I just pivoted the fabric for the skirt)
- didn’t quite understand how the professional method to attach the skirt is better as you can see the rough ends. would not do it again this way
Well I think she liked it. Haven’t heard back if it fits only she’s gonna wear it for a summer wedding.
What are you giving for toddler birthdays?! Spill it. Have a boys 2nd coming up and 3rds too.
