I used the pattern "Baby Playsuit" by Creations By Michie' and a smocking plate by Pat Garretson Designs called "Bebe July". I made a size one because Liam's measurements were just under the measurements for that size. The insert and lining are Imperial broadcloth and the seersucker is a mystery. It has been in my stash 'mellowing' for quite a while! I believe I bought it when my own son was about three and I made a pair of shorts for him. Logan will be 18 this week so I think it needed to be used! It is a polycotton. It will be very easy care for Liam's mama.
http://mamacjt.blogspot.com/), has been talking to me about this product and sent me some and I just love it! Thank you Carol! I will never do an insert without it again! Carol also gave me the playsuit pattern (among lots of other heirloom sewing goodies). You have to know that I thought of you all week long, Carol!
I love the open sides of the bodice. It is so nice and cool for a south Florida baby!
Anyway, I am so glad I can give this to our neighbors to give to Liam. I believe they will be going to Miami in a week or two. Please stop by http://www.projectrunplay.com/2013/01/week-three-boys-week.html to see all the great entrys for this week's challenge.
