For day one I have made her a super cute little romper. I used this tutorial and some japanese cotton lawn from Spotlight. I picked this lawn up on sale for $8 a metre and this romper only used about half of it. So this romper only cost me $4! What a bargain!!! It was also super fast to make. It only took me an hour of sewing time to pull it together. I love how fast kid's clothes are to make. They are the ultimate instant gratification project.
In the spirit of full disclosure I did make a bit of a boo boo with this romper. You see I forgot to add seam allowances in before I cut the pattern pieces. So while it does fit it isn't going to fit for long and it also isn't as baggy and it's meant to be. But that is ok because it is a learning experience! I am hoping to make a few more of these for Imogen for winter. Since it is still warm in our neck of the woods I made this one into shorts but I think a few in a longer length and warmer material will be perfect for winter. Hopefully tomorrows sewing efforts turn out just as cute!
