The epitome of cuteness and a sweet cupcake suit

February 24, 2011

I am biased but I swear Juliette is getting cuter by the day!! I am super excited about making some baby suits for her. This first one has turned out so well and was very satisfying to make! The only changes I would make would be to make the banding on the legs 1-2 mm wider to better accommodate the snaps.

I used an Ottobre pattern but added my own touch to the front with some little frills and a pink panel of buttons. I love how making do with what you have encourages you to come up with new ideas. I didn't have three of the same colour button but had one of each of these which match the cupcakes!  I used a leftover scrap of flannelette from my baby bib for the buttons to sit on - was a better contrast than straight on the interlock.  I am loving my twin needle for sewing stretch edging and the snaps make the suit look very 'profesh'!
