I got lucky today, not only was I in the mood to sew, but the house wasn't completely wrecked to the point I would feel guilty sewing and Jack decided it would be fun to play with the twins after school and before nap time- that doesn't happen often.
So after yesterday's bodysuit I knew I wanted more, like lots more. If you haven't noticed, once I find a pattern I love I become a bit obsessive. Just getting my money's worth, right?
So I remembered I had this really soft plaid that I thought last year I would make some shorts for Jack with, but I was afraid how they would hold up for my rowdy five year old, perfect for this project!
I again made the bodysuit from the Lullaby Layette Set, this time in a 3 month size. The one yesterday is the only newborn or 0-3 month thing I will be making (unless the knit onesies I already have cut are 0-3... I can't remember!), like I said before, I make 'em big, maybe I will be pleasantly surprised with a small babe but I doubt it.
I was torn though, he is due just before the 4th of July so unless I go over this would have been perfect! I am not usually one to make special outfits for the holidays, but this would have been adorbs.
For fun I thought I would add a pocket cut on the bias. I used the pocket included in the pattern intended for the pants, I made the size 0-3 month pocket as I didn't want it too big. Ben always jokes about the reason for infant clothing with pockets, but I think it is totally cute.
I have been holding on to this print for far too long because I was unsure what to use it for. Still, I am undecided, but what's done is done.
I used the yardage the other day to take my nephew's monthly progression pictures and last night it clicked that this would probably work. I remembered the ships being a little closer together, but I went with it anyways.
I wasn't quite sure how to place the ships, especially on the sleeves.
Not too bad for a few days of sewing, though I think it may be time to switch to another pattern before I end up with ten of these, ha!
