seersucker snappy top

July 9th, 2010 · 5 Comments


So after I made those skirts for Becky (no, I haven’t forgotten), I had a fair amount of seersucker left.  Conveniently, I also found myself in possession of a person teeny enough to wear that amount of seersucker.  I made one of these with a contrast collar and a wee little ruffle at the hem (because, guess what, hemming is stupid).  Cute, no?  I wish I’d made it just a hair bigger - this kid grows fast - and this length would likely be a dress on a lot of babies her age.  Turns out she is in the 90th percentile for height, which is something of a novelty considering my other two kids weren’t even on the charts for height or weight until they were almost two.

IMG_0303.jpgHere’s the back of the outfit, and you can also see the bloomers that I made by tracing around a pair of shorts.  I am exceedingly proud of having sewed on the elastic before sewing the leg seams, but then I went and made the waist elastic slightly longer than necessary.  It’s tough to do fittings when your model is asleep.  Anyway… that was yesterday.  Enjoy. :)

    Very impressive, and cute! But not as cute as the baby wearing them!

    Who’s a clever girl then? Your model is so cute, no-one will ever be looking at the waistband.

    We ran into trouble with dungarees because they weren’t long enough in the body for tall babies although I suppose it depends whether they are long in the body or the leg

    Or the body, leg, neck, forehead, and toes.

    Very cute — both the outfit and the wearer!
