I like traditional baby clothes, much more than the modern styles. You know the vintage lovely all in ones from the 40s, 50s and 60s. It's so hard to find any vintage baby clothes for sale that I decided to turn my hand to making
This was my first time following a pattern so it was a bit nerve racking.
I felt for a while like I was reading something in French. I made a lot of mistakes along the way- I had to unpick the whole darn thing at least three times.
I learnt that there is no blagging it or shortcuts.You need to read the pattern book thoroughly before starting.
I also learnt that once you've read the instructions properly and prepared your garment and machine, the actual sewing
together doesn't take too long.
Once on the right track this cute playsuit came together quite well. It's not the most glamorous garment. Its not a skilled bit of sewing. But it is cute and practical for my little crawler.
I enjoyed making it so much that I've made quite a few variations of this pattern.
