Baby's Sunsuit

 I've not made this one before.
After seeing THIS and THIS version by Vicki I had to give it a go.

 To avoid forgetting to add seam allowance when cutting. 
I find it easiest to draft the seam allowances onto the pattern before I cut it out.
A french curve and quilters ruler make drafting a lot eaiser.

 I'm using a pillowcase to make Heather's Sunsuit.
 I bought a pair for $1 at the op shop.
The other I made into a peasant Dress.

I made the dress too long so shortened it with a tuck.
Yep, it's crooked.

 And here's the sunsuit all sewn up.
I followed Enid's instructions
 I think she likes it.

 It's a nice fit too
Pattern: Baby's Sunsuit
Book: Play Clothes

  1. I love the sunsuit , just so pretty !

  2. Gorgeous! I keep buying pretty pillowcases for my pillows and then cutting them up. Poor pillows! I like sewing Enid stuff and would love to contribute to this blog if I may. You can contact me via pzy001 @ [the spaces are just there to discourage trawlers bc I don't need more spam! Thanks :)
