As much as I enjoy making clothing for myself and my girls -- I've never been a big fan of making baby clothing. It's because there are only certain types of clothes that actually fit babies well and comfortably. Those being knit onesies,leggings, and rompers, am I right? You make a baby dress and as soon as you try to hold that baby, the dress is creeping up on her. So I stick to making baby bibs and such...
I was going through my rather large stash of sewing patterns when I found this little sunsuit. It was a pattern that my mom had purchased to use for me when I was baby. I thought it might be something I could make for the 8-month-old that she could wear easily.
Why did I not find this little gem sooner? I've already made two of these sunsuits and am contemplating my next!
I went with a double gauze for both of the suits -- both fabrics can be found here. Double gauze works well for garments and since this is for warmer weather, it's super breathable for the higher temps. And it doesn't hurt that the more you wash double gauze, the softer it gets.
So cute, right?
Here is the pattern for those interested -- it has a date of 1984. I'm also considering a beach bonnett next for my lady
