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


  1. Cute outfit & very cute model!

  2. Lovely! I had my eye on that pattern to draft for the summer too... but time just seemed to fly by and now it is Autumn already?!?!

    I adore your choice of fabrics and your boy looks so handsome wearing his sunsuit. Bravo.

  3. Autumn bah! It was 39 degrees here today. I'm still going to make another as I'm sure there'll be plenty more hot days in March.

    Thank you for the lovely comments.

  4. This is wonderful - so fabbo for this horrid summer we are having! Well done and thanks for sharing :)

  5. I need to try this one, now that Heather is almost crawling
