I’m still working to fulfill my goal of making more outfits than Baby C will be able to wear this summer, haha. My latest effort from the baby-sewing dept, Bunny Capris:
I know they practically look like shorts here but try and remember that C is a cloth diaper baby. The fabric is Riley Bunnies by Anna Griffin (and hey look it’s ON SALE at Fabricworm right now…full disclosure: FW was one of my STW sponsors but I do not receive any sort of compensation for mentioning the shop, just trying to provide you with a place to get it).
The pattern is my Big Butt Baby Pants pattern (not yet published, that’s just another picture) for cloth diaper babes which I chopped off to make capris. Oh so clever. Those of you who have been begging me since forever to make it available will be happy to know that these capris put it one step closer to publication. Still, tweaking that panel on the back so it’s just right is proving to be a bit of a challenge. When the panel gets wider, the legs have to get narrower, blah blah. These are size 12-18 months so they’re a little big on C, who will be a year old end of July.
Since the top I made these to go with had a nice demure ruffle over the sleeve, I decided to add them to the bottom of the leg…and then, well, I went a little crazy:
The result is a little over-the-top, even for me, but it’s cute and hilarious so we’re keeping it. I’m still waiting to see how these wash up; knit ruffles definitely shrink up when they are washed so I’ll keep you posted.
