If we could all remember
what it was to be a child
the world would be
a more pleasant place.

Sweet Baby Taylor is the daughter of Kristen, another of my wonderful teammates at school. She was just over a year old when I made this sunsuit set last April She has amazing motor skills. She was full-on walking at nine months without holding on to anything! She is fast, too! The only non-blurry photos I was able to take of her in this outfit were when she was lying down!
Just look at that sweet face!
The sunsuit is a PDF pattern from Little Lizard King. It was the first time I made it and it was an enjoyable sew. The finish inside is very nice with all enclosed seams. The front piece is lined and encloses the back pieces. I used pink plastic snaps on the bottom which was my first experience with plastic ones. I was thrilled with how easy and fast the application was and I am hopeful that they will stand the test of time like the ones made of metal.
I used a vintage Madeira hand towel and some really nice eyelet edging to embellish the front of the sunsuit and a wider eyelet for the flutters on the shoulder straps.
Patterns: 'Astoria' by Little Lizard King,
'Bunny Baby Bonnet' by Polluted Pixie on Etsy,
bib pattern: unknown.
Fabrics, Etc.: vintage linens, trims & eyelets from my stash,
floral fabric from stash (?) and yellow Kona cotton broadcloth
I absolutely loved making the bunny eared bonnet! Soooooooo cute! I even made another for a dear friend's new granddaughter that I will blog about another day. The pattern pieces go together well and the directions were easy to follow.
Thank you for reading my blog! I hope your day is filled with sunshine and flowers (even if it is only the figurative kind)!
