Granddaughter 1st Birthday

Added Apr 5, 2014

Chemainus, Canada






I made this little outfit for our granddaughter, who will be celebrating her first birthday on May 30 th. It is from KWIK SEW 3113. To follow the heart theme of the buttons, I embroidered little hearts on the pants back pockets. I used a lightweight zipper for comfort. The denim is lightweight, and nice and soft. As there is spandex in the fabric, it will be a comfortable garment for her to wear.

Material Notes

I used a soft denim, with some spandex content. Because of the spandex content, I had to wait in between each pressing for it to cool before I could stitch again.

    What a wonderful suit! Really WOW! I wish I could have the one for myself:-) Some people think small things are easy to do but it’s not right. I’m sure that to make such a neat and pretty suit, you spent not less time than for an adult and all those litlle details need much attention and patience! Perfect!

      Thanks! I agree, sometimes little things are harder, such as the bar tacking. It took just as much time as when I make my husband his denim jackets. And now that he saw that I could make jeans, he asked why I don’t make my own……

      It happens – chain reaction, as soon as everybody sees what you can do, they think you have to do it for everybody:-)

      Thank you. With her colouring, this shade of pink I think will look great on her.

      Thanks! I really enjoyed making it. I purchased the denim last fall when I saw it, and it was gone next time I was in the store, so I was lucky I had enough.

    CUTE! I love the little heart buttons & matching embroidery, the color and everything, she is gonna love it. My 3 1/2 year old niece would love this – I can picture her in it, now you gave me an idea :D and I second Mary’s compliment.

      Thanks! It was a pleasure to sew. I actually found the buttons a few months ago; so I couldn’t resist putting hearts on the pockets.

      Thanks Mary! You ladies are making me blush…. Are you going to make 3 outfits now??? Only word of advice, keep track of which piece is which, and the direction they go, as there are 25 pieces.
