Baby L was born just before Christmas and, to celebrate it, Annika’s sewing friends got together and organized a virtual baby shower for her and her baby girl.
This was, of course, the perfect opportunity to sew some cute little baby clothes…
PATTERN: Birdie Birdie Jersey Dress and Caterpillar Leggings both for Ottobre MagazineSpring 1/2015. I think you already know about my love for Ottobre knit patterns… I love their simple design and perfect fitting. But I also love how practical and easy to wear their designs are. So it was a no brainer to choose a little dress and a pair of leggings for Annika’s baby girl from one of the magazines I own. Baby L will look stylish and but super comfortable. I made no changes to the original patterns except for the neckline finish on the dress. Because I couldn’t find any matching ribbing, I made a simple neckband (serged and topstitched with a double needle) instead of a “proper” neck binding. I think this way it is slightly stretchier and hopefully easier to dress and undress.
FABRIC: Liberty Cotton Jersey from Mike Tecidos (sorry, it is out of stock!) and Striped Cotton Jersey from Maria Pirosa. It is hard to find nice Jersey fabric in Portugal but I got lucky with both these fabrics. I just hope Annika likes the soft prints!
Last but not least…Because, with babies, there is always the need to store an extra set of clothing or a diaper, I though a nice matching knit bag would come handy. So, with the leftover fabric I had, I made a simple – but personalized – bag for Babby L.
Congrats Annika! I hope we can meet soon!@Inspinration | @Huisjeboompjeboefjes | @MadebyToya | @Pienkel Do Guincho | Needle and Ted | As It Seams | Made by Sara @Dottasews | @Mycozyco | @Compagnie M @Stahlarbeit @Froeleintilia | @Byevamaria | Craftstorming
