Baby Hooded Dress and Leggings12:05 AM
With cooler weather coming, I realized I could use some long sleeved baby clothes for Ellie.
So I hacked out a little hooded dress out of slub knit. When I don't use a pattern, it's usually a "fail and fix" process, and this was no exception.
I used a onesie for a basic pattern.
I made it and the sleeves were like sausage casings on her little fat arms. So I took them out as much as I could, but they were still a little tight.
The leggings were too fat. They kept falling off her bum so I had to take in the elastic waist and took a little out of the legs. I left the hem of the skirt just raw unsewn edges.
For the leggings, I just used another pair as a pattern. Ashley has a good tutorial here, and hers ended up fitting a lot better than mine.
The skirt's pretty short since it's a dropped waist dress, I think it's only 4 or 5" long.
