Too busy enjoying her.
The Lullaby Layette is a great little pattern. I made Trixie another bodysuit, with long sleeves.
I used the size 6-12 months but added an inch to the body to accommodate her cloth nappy.
I was slightly horrified at how much of my precious Liberty this used, I think I will stick to less expensive fabrics in future, as being a bodysuit, it is going to have a short shelf life.
I used poppers for the leg openings but Trixie's 'signature' flower MoP buttons for the front.
Just a little more dressy.
It is a sweet little romper but I think I could have added a bit more length.
Luckily, it will usually be worn as 'best' therefore over a disposable which will give her some breathing room.
Another item I wish I had sized up.
The Purl Soho Winter baby hat. I made Trixie the 6-12 month but it is very snug.
The secret to this hat is this gorgeous organic cotton fleece. I really thought long and hard before ordering it but it was worth it.
I lined a LTTS Cosy Bear hat for Tildy, with it,as well.
I will be using every little scrap I can!
Back to Trixie.
Another beautiful pattern from Purl Soho the Sunbonnet, this time.
In a scrap of the finest Irish linen and lined with more Wiltshire.
This time the 6-12 months is perfect!
Next, a sweet little vintage number.
Based loosely on this pin.
I found some gorgeous fine merino suiting in my stash. So light and silky but incredibly warm.
I added a Hailspot muslin neck ruffle and embroidered cross stitches with coral embroidery silk as a wee high light.
I decided to line it with cotton poplin, just in case it was scritchy, by making a second dress and putting the two together.
I applied the facing over the top.
I used some scraps of Liberty, silky and smooth.
And how does it look?
Super dooper cute!
I adore her in this.
I just adore her.
