I have always said that people who sew are the nicest people out there. I have met some wonderful people on-line over the past several years. And many of these people I truly consider friends. One of these friends is Erin. She is the creator of Children's Fashion Workshop and has amazing ideas for children's clothes. Not only can she sew gorgeous clothes for her four little ones (and another on the way)...but she can also draft any pattern she desires. She is incredible!!! This sweet infant bodysuit that Ean is wearing is her latest pattern. I was lucky enough to pattern test it for her and I love it.
This pattern utilizes knit fabric and since I had not sewn on knits since I made a bathing suit in high school....I was a little concerned. But with Erin's directions it was truly easy and fun! Yes, fun! I never thought I would say that about sewing knits.
I made Ean the 18 month size so he would have some room for growth. I love a baby in a white undershirt. This is also the shirt he had on underneath his fishy bubble I made him a few weeks back. It fits great and I will definitely be making more. I think this coupled with a pair of bloomers, or shorts would be a fantastic baby gift.
