Baby's Sunsuit

Hi. My name is Vicki and I live in Perth. My boy has grown out of the mountains of tiny baby stuff we were given, so I finally have the opportunity to use my Enid pattern books!

This is my third Enid pattern, but the only one I've got around to photographing. I chose this pattern as my 8 month old has worked out how to take his cloth nappies off, so just wearing a nappy on super hot days isn't an option. It was so quick to make - took me one evening to draft and mostly finish.

I messed up by not
adding seam and hem allowances. The previous two pattern I've made were virtually seamless and had bound hems so I didn't need to. It fits fine now, but there's not much room for growth. I'm not too bothered though, being so quick to make I can easily run up another!

Pattern: Baby's Sunsuit
Book: Play Clothes
Size: 9-18 mths
Fabric: Blue gingham and a quilting fat quarter
