But look at that outfit. Isn't it sweet? I do attend quite a number of baby showers, so I shall hang on to these until I am next invited to one for a precious little girl and I will already have a gift in hand.
Both patterns are from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. I sewed them up in the 0-3 month sizes, but, to be honest, they look like a 3-6 month old sizing would be more appropriate.
The fly stitch, which is included on my sewing machine, proved to be a perfect choice to finish off the top of the slit on the kimono-style sleeve.
These two patterns from Little Stitches for Little Ones are letter G Cutie Booties and letter H Easy Empire-Waist Top.
I would welcome comments from any of you who might have Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. I find the instructions well written, however, I do need some drawings now and then to ensure I am on the right track, as Amy Butler's pattern tend to use some techniques not found in a lot of main stream patterns. But, to my dismay, there are not a lot of step-by-step drawings to accompany the instructions. Anybody else find that to be the case?
I'm please with the end result(s), but I doubt I will sew these two patterns again.
My mojo is returning as I envision the garment on my dress form that is about half way complete. It will be a great addition to my summer wardrobe. The pattern is from the April issue of Burda Style. More on that later.
Have a great weekend and those of you Stateside have a safe and restful holiday weekend.
