|Pattern Description: |
"Coordinates" (how dull is that!)
I'd say cute dress and romper options with applique detail.
Up to 12 months. I made the largest size (12 months).
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but I think mine is more fun.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I liked most of the instructions, but felt some bits could be explained better for beginners. The button hole placement for example is not very clear on the pattern. You have a fold back facing, and then have to work out (based on the age/size you make) where the button hole marking is.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's something I think a child can grow in to, and should last a bit before they grow out of it. The fit is quite roomy so good if you are making for a child far from home (this is for a friend's baby).
This project came in to being after I bought some toile fabric for the baby's mother, as I am going to be making a dress with her and wanted to practice making the bodice first. The pink fabric you see in the photo is a stretch thick cotton twill. The lining is a lovely stretch shirt weight cotton.
The idea is that they are hard wearing, easily washable and comfy to wear.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Added a full lining. Reduced the hem allowance on the lining so it will peak out from under the dress. The baby has severe eczema so I have done everything I can to make it soft. That includes pre washing in delicate laundry soap, making the bias binding out of the lining and adding snaps (the buttonholes and buttons are decorative). I hate the stress of getting buttons holes perfect, and felt snaps would be more practical.
I also continued the bias binding round the ends of the shoulder straps, much nicer finish and cant understand why this wasnt included to start with. Skipped the suggested interfacing as I felt the fabric was heavy enough to start with and didn't need to made it any stiffer.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I intend to sew this again with the baby's mother, as we are going to make a "mini me" out fit out of left over's from the dress we are making for her (mum). Wish me luck, as I will be working on my first ever full bust adjustment.
Cute outfit. Love the butterflies (they really make it more special). Didn't enjoy the bias binding making/sewing process. I think the end result is really worth the effort, but am not convinced I will be making a lot more of it in future!
Looking forward to making this again out of cotton stretch corduroy for a winter/autumn version.
