.Sewing for baby: little suits.

Two new patterns experimented with. Two more little suits.

This suit comes from Ottobre 1/2012 "Waldo Coverall". If you are wanting some great baby patterns, I'd highly recommend this issue as I've used it to death. The pattern actually used a lot of the same pieces from the viking suit I've already made. Because the viking suit looked a bit wide around the body, I slimmed the pieces down a bit for this one and it looks much better.
I used some towelling knit as the main fabric and thought it might look too much like a towel, but the Farbenmix Primera towelling is beautiful and soft and the loop is really small. I sewed some little elbow patches as an afterthought to match the knee patches on the front - love knee and elbow patches on kids clothes!
I'd been eyeing off this pattern in Ottobre 6/2012 "Nukkumatti Baby Sleeeper" since I first started sewing the baby clothes, but was scared of sewing the invisible zipper into a knit fabric. I thought it would stretch and move all over the place, but when I actually bit the bullet and had a go, it was waaaay easier than I had imagined and came together first go!
This one feels nice and snuggly and the zipper will make for super quick and easy changes. The pattern only starts at a size 56cm (looks like a 00 to me) so I'll definitley be using it again as the baby gets older.
