Brooklyn, New Yo...
Last night after dinner I couldn’t help but noticing one of hubby’s former favorite T-shirts from Brooklyn Industries in our “To Donate” pile, with a cool silkscreened design of late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat in boxing gloves. I happened to have this Kwik Sew onesie pattern already cut out and ready to test-a few hours later I had this stylish onesie for my baby girl (sorry she can’t model it, but she’s not born yet!)
The body was cut from a 100% cotton T-shirt. The sleeves were a lighter-weight purple cotton lycra knit leftover from various other projects. And the purple foldover elastic binding (FOE) was from Sewzanne’s (online fabric store). I think it adds just a slight girly touch without the usual pink/ribbons/bows overload on most baby girl clothes. I haven’t added snaps yet, but I will.
