This past winter I started to get hooked on the Sew Beautiful magazine. I love the smocking, tips and patterns in them. I have made a few things from the magazines and this is yet another inspired outfit for my baby boy.
(Warning! Lots of photos of a really cute baby!!)
This sunsuit is right out of the May/June magazine, the only change is the main fabric to a green plaid. The pattern is by Michie' #120. The very same one as the watermelon dress. I love that this pattern is for both a dress and sunsuit. I stitched the little grasshopper by hand, I am very surprised and happy that it came out so well. I also made the piping. I prewashed the brown fabric and had no problems with it bleeding through onto any other fabrics but when I washed this it did leak some ink onto the white yoke. It looks a bit of variegated fabric so I guess it's not too bad.
I did size up again on this one to a 18 months as well. It is very long on him, like pants long. I know it will fit longer on him but next time I will go back to the 12 months size I think. But it is so cute on him!
Over all I love this pattern. I it very simple to make but there is a bit of hand stitching involved so it did a some time to make. I love the fit of this and plan on making more of these little cute sunsuits.
And little Prince C? He loves the grass he got to play in while I took his picture. He had a blast.
Happy Father's Day!!
