Peter Rabbit: Piper and Pete Romper

With spring around the corner it is time to start thinking and sewing for the warmer weather that is on it's way! I was very happy and lucky to test This adorable romper pattern from Ellie Inspired last month. I adore the vintage feeling of it, the collar and the back lines are awesome! The button placket is very clever and looks almost hidden. The pattern can be made with shorts or pants and for style for a girls or style for a boy.

The romper is roomy enough for my skinny guy for me to layer this romper for the colder weather still. (he has a T shirt underneath I made him) I made some baby piping for the collar and hand made an applique' of Peter Rabbit to the bodice portion. He and I are big Peter Rabbit fans! He reminds me so much of him too.

This was a size 24 months. The pattern runs from a newborn size to 36 moths so he should be able to wear this style for about another year until potty training starts.

I am not sure who loves this outfit more, me or him.

You can find the pattern over here.

Happy Sewing!!

Sweet pea's new baby doll

Sweet pea received a new baby doll for her birthday, she was a bit late in getting here but she did make it. She is the Bitty Baby doll from the American Girl company. Since the move I had not sewn her new baby up an outfit. As I was told that Ella the waldorf doll and her could not share clothes and she needed her own things.  (I just love my Sweet pea!)

So first up is Ellie Inspired pattern Mini Holly Days made to a day gown length paired with our Mini Bonnet pattern. I couldn't leave her nappy uncovered so I made a wee little pair of bloomers to cover it.....

with ruffles on the bum! I made Sweet pea several pairs when she was a baby too so it is wonderful to be sewing wee things even if it is just for baby doll. I have been given a list of things to make her and I have my own list of things I want to make her too so this dolly will be as well dressed as Sweet pea's other American Girl doll. I do love sewing wee little things. 

Happy Weekend!!
