Description

The playsuit (or onesie, as I prefer) came about relatively easily – a Frankenpattern involving my trusty bodice block and the highwaisted shorts I made around this time last year. The darts were moved to meet up at the waist seam, and the waistband of the shorts where removed before joining it up with the bodice. Lapped zipper at centre back to get in and out, finished off with a hook-and-eye at the top to prevent any embarrassing mishaps. Still not the most convenient of outfits to wear if you find yourself needing some…relief, though.

You know what the best part of this outfit is? Besides the fact that it is a onesie, that is. It was practically FREE! The blue chambray-looking (but actually most likely polyester) fabric came from my mother-in-law, while the blue and white nautical-themed collar come by courtesy of my friend, the divine Miss Kitty Valentine.

    This is a fantastic playsuit, it’s the perfect length and cut. The fabric looks divine and the collar is a lovely touch. Can I also say that I LOVE your hat? Well yes, I do.
