Romping about


No sign of our errant puss...no doubt cold weather/rain will drive him home eventually...

I had a lovely long weekend, having yesterday off as a day 'in lieu' of working weekends recently. I could get used to a 3-day weekend!

I have been sewing merrily away, finishing off the romper for baby A. It's pretty cute and hopefully will fit him - he's a big boofa! He was around 4.7kg, which is on the big side! I made the 3-6 months size, so hopefully it will do the trick.

It's the same Simplicity pattern as the dress I made, but the romper version. It has side pockets (detail below) and a snap crotch. Sewing the snap tape was the most difficult part of the process, which surprised me - I thought the sleeves might be, but they were dead easy :)


And, as you can see, I even put a zip in :) It'll go in the mail tomorrow. I so hope it fits and it's liked!

I love the little side pockets. Sooo cute. I used to buy snaps on tape and then you just have to sew on the tape with a zipper foot. You don't have to stress over placement either. I used to keep sewing the big one on upside down. I don't know if they still make it but I found it well worth the bit extra I had to pay for the tape.

Oh it's gorgeous!!!! I love the material you've used, those little bees are adorable. I'm sure the 3-6mth size will fit well as I had a 4.6kg one myself and she was in a newborn size for nearly a month.
