    I love when something I try works out.

    I am not a pattern designer but I do enjoy sewing without patterns sometimes…mostly for myself. I have a dress form that I use.

    My all time favorite things to sew is little girls dresses.

    It’s a boy and winter. I think that sherpa or berber fleece would b perfect!! Thank you for the suggestion. I was serching and knit just seems so average.

    I am working on Lullably Layette pieces. I am doing a long sleeve, snap crotch top in a RealTree fabric. Not my choice of fabric, but my niece loves the stuff. I have brown fine wale corduroy for the pants. I want to do a jacket also but I am not sure what fabric to use.

  • Wish I could use the same die for both size snaps. The snaps are pretty cheap, but I would need a die set for each size. Sigh…so many things I want.

  • Thank you!! I don’t have any snaps or the dies, just the press. I think I will start with the smaller size 16.

  • I just was gifted a Kam Snap press. I will be using them on the shirts and playsuits from the Layette pattern. I have heard that the size 20s are the best overall size but will they work well on the smaller clothing?

  • I would have used felt and paint. That blue painters paint works well on felt. I do a lot of the costumes for my son’s school and at play time, I feel like I have a full time job sewing. Last year for Hairspray, I made something like 16 dresses as well as a bunch of other pieces. Wouldn’t have been so bad if they weren’t all different sizes…[Read more]

    That is what I did but I must have measured wrong. It wasn’t the right size and stuck up a bit on the side.

    I totally love the patterns! The dresses are to die for and I really love the classic look and versatility of the patterns.

    I am sewing newborn. I also do not have any of those patterns. This one is my first and I just LOVE it. I am sewing for a relative. She is having her first baby and I don’t even know the sex yet. I just make one girl outfit, one boy outfit, girl, boy,etc. Her due date is Aug. 1 so this pattern is just perfect!

    OMGosh! The clothes are cute but your baby is adorable!! My ovaries just ache.

    I drafted a collar and put in on the shirt. I like the way it looks but it isn’t perfect so I will try again. Unfortunately I accidentally threw the pattern I drew away. I was hoping to find one here.

    Thank you! They look so short.

    I just made my first pair of layette pants in a size 0-3 months. The legs seems super short. Is this correct? Has anyone been adding to the inseam. The crotch length is PLENTY long, in fact I removed a little bit of it as it will be for a baby in disposable diapers.
