The baby t-shirt is detailed with a small applique on the front and poplin patches on the elbows. There is also a small pocket on the sleeve.
I cut the 62cm.
For the shirt, I used a poly/cotton/lycra super soft knit from my stash. The patches are from 100% cotton from a local quilt shop and the purple is ribbing from my stash. The embroidery on the front is one from my software. The shirt is so little I resized it down about 30%. Glad it looks okay.
Did it look like the drawing? Yes, given a very few minor modifications I made.
Here's what I liked/disliked about the pattern:
1. Super cute styling. I love the patches on the elbows and the little tiny pocket. 2. Easy, logical construction steps that make this remarkably easy to sew. 3. Did I mention how cute the entire outfit is? 4. Excellent written instructions. 5. I love how the pattern pieces are in different colors and clearly labeled. If you have sewn with Burda sewing magazine you will know what I mean about pieces being somewhat difficult to trace with all the lines and the same color of ink to look at. With these patterns, the different clothing items are marked and the directions tell you which page to look at and which color of pieces to trace. Much easier for me to do! Dislikes: 1. Very few visuals are included in the pattern directions. The visuals that are included are excellent such as for the fly. 2. No reminder at the start of the directions to add the seam allowances--my fault entirely, but a reminder would be nice.
Alterations/Modifications: I just left the little flap on the pocket off. If you could have seen how small the pieces were, you probably would have done the same thing. I add that little bit of purple ribbing to the sleeves. I like the additional pop of color. As I mentioned before, I added the embroidery but left off the applique. Instead of stay tape at the shoulders, I stabilized the seam with 1/4" clear elastic.
Recommendations? Yes...if you love sewing for children, these patterns seem well constructed and designed. They are stylish and adorable. I can't wait to try many more!
Conclusion: Waiting for the arrival of the model is torture. I will have to spend my free time making more clothing for him!
