Best in Show

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?

  1. ARGH!! You have to get that pattern out!! LOL!! I have a cloth diapered baby and am waiting on you! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Adorable outfit…. I LOVE the pocket!


  2. 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. πŸ™‚

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

    Happy Day!

  4. Cute outfit–it looks so light and airy. If you want to rent me Clementine for a week it'll enable you to get some sewing done πŸ™‚

  5. YES POCKET!!! The perfect teeny touch. I'm shocked and apalled that anyone would hate on that sweet little pocket.

  6. Yes, on the pocket! So cute!
    Pretty please on the cloth diapered big booty pants… pretty please! My bubble butts need knee protecting britches!

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

  8. 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) πŸ˜‰ I love the photos!

  9. so cute. i haven't really liked this fabric much until i've seen this adorable outfit. and i love the cute pocket too πŸ™‚

  10. 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!

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

  12. 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!)

  13. 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!

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

    Love the pockets.

  15. so so sweet! I love her outfit. And the pockets are just adorable as well. πŸ™‚ love the ric rac, too!

  16. Are you kidding? Making summer outfits for adorable little girls IS serious sewing. I love the pocket.

  17. PRECIOUS. I had better get working on new outfits for L–already almost 2 months old and I haven't made her a single stitch!!

  18. I like the pocket.
    I must have that pattern for the pants! Please, please, please finish it up soon! πŸ˜€

  19. Dear me that's cute. I like the pocket, but think it's better on the baby without the pocket. Purer πŸ™‚

  20. LOVE LOVE LOVE that outfit! I say no pockets for a more classy look and pocket to make it more fun.

  21. OK, This is sooooo unfair….You persistantly show adorable, new ideas made from your "Big Butt" Pattern, but have yet to publish the pattern??? C'Mon, we WAAAAANT it. Bad. Hurry? Please???!!?

  22. This is amazing! One of the best uses of the Champion print from Red Letter Day that I have ever seen!!!

  23. 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!

  24. 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?

  25. im kinda late..but..
    this is so sweet so adorable.
    and the pocket is very cute too!

    i just made a little dress inspired by this one!
    you're most welcome to come check it out!

  26. I love this outfit and I live in the tropics so its perfect for here, I bought your big butt pants pattern today, could you please share where you bought the linen for the top its lovely, thank you.
