Finally I sewed!!
Since Dutch has been born I have had no time to sew for him. I thought I would make a lot of little outfits for him but haven't had the extra time. I'm hoping that I will be able to make a few things for him this summer but honestly he has so many clothes already so I may have to wait until next year for that. Anyway one thing I was adamant on making was his Easter outfit. I found a photo a couple of years ago of an outfit that I knew was perfect. I bought the pattern and fabric but then chickened out. I didn't have the time or brain power to commit. I switched gears and went with something that looked a lot simpler. The baby bubble from Chery Williams.
I wanted Dutch to have a lace collar this year. Yes he is a boy but I live in the deep south and people put lace on a boy as long as they can. With that said I will probably only get away with it this year or maybe I can sneak it in next year. Just don't tell Eric.
For Dutch's outfit I used the yellow girl bubble but with boy sleeves. The original plan was to finish off the neck and collar separately so that way if I have another baby I can use the collar again. Well it worked out to be easier to just attach the collar so that is what I did.
I am glad to report that the outfit made it though the day without falling apart! It still isn't technically finished, I want to go back around the edges with my serger but was having thread difficulties that have to be figured out. The sewing back had bitten so I am going to try to get the serger working right again soon so I can make something else.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter celebrating Jesus and the new life he gives. We did!
