Description

in celebration of a new baby boy in the family (not mine, but my husband’s sister’s!) AND a new overlocker (this one is mine!), i decided to make this simple baby shirt.

this was my first time ever of sewing a baby garment. and this was my first time EVER of using an overlocker. before this, i had zero experience and knowledge of overlocker of any sort. this shirt is done 80% using the overlocker, and 20% using the normal sewing machine. the pattern i used is pattern no. 129 from Burda Style magazine 11/2014.

it was also my first time of trying the twin needle on my normal sewing machine. (yep, all this time i had never dared to try it!!) i used it for the bottom of the sleeves and the hemline. since my sewing machine is basically still dying (as it turns out… snick!), sometimes it missed a lower stitch and jumped to the next one. it helped when i made the stitch length a bit smaller.

also posted on my blog .

    You are so lucky to have a new baby in the faminy and an overlocker, congrats on both! I’m so jealous as I have none of these! You did an excellent job with this, the little garment is really adorable! Have fun with your well dressed baby AND your new overlocker!

      Oh Liliv, i got a super cheap non-branded overlocker because i’m completely unexperienced in the overlock world. :D with your excellent sewing skills, i doubt you need one, but you will be able to get it one day, i’m sure!
