I have made my babies first outfit.
Would you like a peep?
Its the gorgeous new pattern by Oliver+S
The Lullaby Layette
It is just so sweet!
First up, the body suit.
I sewed this is charcoal hailspot muslin that two of my sweet friends Sarvi and Colette bought for the baby.
This can be made with short or long sleeves.
It has a good length front tab, a poppered opening for nappy changes and sweet elastic gathered legs.
The poppers I purchased from the Oliver+S shop
Good and roomy too, I am pretty sure it will go over a cloth nappy.
The back has a nice pleat to add some room with out being too pouffy.
Next up the top.
I made is up in white hailspot muslin.
Again you can make it short or long sleeved.
I used sweet teddy bear MOP buttons sent to me by my sweet friend Claire. Red thread to complement the cardy that was the inspiration for the whole ensemble.
The top has a gentle A-line that falls beautifully in a soft fabric.
The pants are deliciously bloomy.
The back leg wraps around the front, a very cute detail.
And speaking of the back.
Check out these pockets!
Another lovely gift, some cute ribbon from the lovely MC, make a sweet tag.
Finally, the dear little fully lined jacket.
It has a very nifty construction (so clever) and a bound edge.
It could be worn completely reversed.
As advised I used poppers for fastenings.
How lovely is this?
All these lovely things were made to co-ordinate with the absolutely breath taking cardys knitted for me by my sweet friend, Sarvi.
This one, sigh
And this little cutey!
Aren't I spoilt?
