First up, a little jacket to go with the pants from souricette 1.
It’s also from Handmade Beginnings. I used the same fabrics as for the pants : lobster embroidered seersucker, red cotton, and shibori dyed muslin. Since the pants are sized 3-6 months, so is the jacket.
I also wanted to make something out of knits.
I went with the Oliver + S Nature Walk Yoga Pants (size 6-12 months) in navy blue cotton interlock. I completed the outfit with the Oliver + S Sailboat Top (size 6-12 months). I used organic cotton interlock from Birch here.
My topstitcthing wasn’t looking so great so I embroidered over it. Just a simple running stitch. For the bottom, I didn’t want to topstitch so I stitched in the ditch at the side seams instead. That tacked the hem facing in place.
I really wanted to make one more outfit so I went with the Oliver + S After-school Shirt and Pants (size 12-18 months). I used some dark red/burgundy-ish cotton and some awesome Kaffe Fassett stripes from my stash.
The stripes are woven in, not printed. I love a woven in pattern. I didn’t try to match up the stripes. For one, because it isn’t a symmetrical stripe sequence and for two, because I thought the break in the stripes would look interesting. I’m quite happy with the result!
And look at those pockets!
Confession time: I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to do the pockets. Why would a 12 month old need pockets? But they’re so cute that they’re worth it.
And now, I have one more thing to make for this little boy but first, Project Run & Play sewing must happen…
