Summer baby sets for Eva and matching PJs for Andrei - Ottobre patterns
The summer is getting hot ( or so it seamed when I start tracing this patterns ) and Eva is growing really fast. The previous bodies and footed pants are already to small and she needs new ones. I loved so much to see her in my creations that I decided to sew for her again. I traced 68 this time when she was only 6 weeks, but she was big 5.2kg and 57cm. I should have used 62 but she is growing faster then I sew it seams so I said it is OK to swim in this clothes for a little while.
I used Ottobre patterns again. This are number 3 and 4 form the 3/2013 issue.
They are nice designs and they turned out OK but I had to stress and test if the body will be large enough to pass the head. I think I like the wrap around ones better for dressing but this ones are more comfortable in hot weather and they probably look a little better. The pants are huge for now and it is a cool design but I think I like the rainy sky leggings better. The fit her so nicely. Maybe is just the sizing ( I have those in 62 ).
The apple faces fabric is from a local shop and it seems to be very good quality and it was cheap. From the remaining fabric I did a matching PJ set for supper using the patterns from his wardrobe :
lime jersey pants & cacao bean T-shirt
Aren't they cute together like this?
This project was for me also a way to try some new binding techniques - the ones from my son's tee quite a big failure but the ridding from Eva's body was almost decent. Since I was pleased to see her dressed I did a new set on organic cotton from etsy:
