It’s too hard to focus on serious sewing when there’s summer outfits to be made for Clementine. 

Fabric: Red Letter Day by Lizzy House + White Linen

Patterns: Seaside Sundress (upsized for 12-18 mo/shortened to make a swingy top) + Big Butt Baby Pants (shortened again to make capris…bloomers would have been cuter but I have to protect those pudgy little knees)

The only question now is: would this be cuter with pockets?

    I like the pocket. It's a fun addition. The outfit is darling….as is Clementine. I agree, making sweet little outfits like this takes precedence to other things. :)

  4. Andrea says:

    Oh gosh … usually I'd say, nah on the pocket. But that itty bitty tiny one? Yes, put it on … such a cute touch!!

  24. Kimberly says:

    What!?! How could this possibly be cuter? It couldn't! The pocket just took the entire outfit over-the-top. Love it!

  25. Kelly Irene says:

    cuteness overload! I really like that fabric and the white linen is perfect! I just made some dresses for my own crawler, and she needs some cloth diaper bottoms to go with them (hint hint) ;) I love the photos!

  28. sally says:

    I know what you mean. I have a little girl turning one and there are so many little things I want to sew for her. Plus my two older kids. There is no time for other stuff. I just want the kids to look cute in all the things I made!

  29. Care says:

    YES!! Pockets!! :o )

  31. Cori says:

    Ooh, now that's a cute outfit! And I love the pocket; I think you should add it. ;)

  32. Sherry says:

    I think this is my favorite patter for her so far. I LOVE the linen and the swing top and the patterned bottoms. Perfect!

  33. Myrnie says:

    The pocket is adorable…but it looks so breezy without it…. I know, I'm a big help right? I love the white linen- so summery!

    EVERYTHING is cuter with bloomers! At nearly 2 years, I still have to cover up Mimi's "chubby kness." (She still climbs using a combo of hands, knees, and feet. And she likes to run…and was shocked the first time she fell with uncovered knees. Poor baby!)

  34. Jo - To a Pretty Life says:

    I'm in love with linen, and I think your fabric choice is perfect! The pocket is so cute, and the ricrac is great too!

  35. Melinda says:

    My goodness, is there anything more kissable than the back of a baby's neck?!

  57. Em says:

    So very cute. I think the pockets add just a simple and adorable detail. Well done!

  58. Jenny says:

    That is as cute as can be! I don't know what happened but I lost your blog for awhile there! I'm trying to catch up! Looks like you are doing well!

  59. Kerry says:

    Regular old pocket? Nah
    But that pocket? With the adorable pleats? and the rick rack? Its just fabulous!
    Like the others… I'm waiting on the Big Butt Pants!!!
    How can there be so many diaper patterns out there for people to STO, but no pant patterns to go over their fluffy tooshes?

  60. Ducks and Rabbits says:
