Baby Gift set and cords from Marcus

Yay! I have finally had a chance to sew up this baby gift set for a friends who gave birth to a baby boy 'Oliver' last monday. The set was made using the New conceptions Baby essentials pattern, My absoloutly favourite baby clothing pattern!

I also had time yesterday to sew these cords up for Marcus using Burda style 9793. I used a $2p/m cord from SL for my trial pair. Although the pattern goes together easily I found it to be HUGE! Marcus is in a 1-2 around his waist in RTW clothes and a 3 for his length. I made these up in a 92(2) using his waist measurement for the elastic and added a small amount of length and they still came out way too big for his little bum! I love the pattern though so I will be spending quite a bit of time doing some mods to the pattern before using it again.

Mya's winter wardrobe

I am just about done sewing Mya's winter clothes now Yay! Here is a few sets I have made this week.

Top- Bought RTW top as I couldnt find fabric this colour. Bootleg cords with burda style pattern and euro cord applique (This time I slightly modified the burda pattern to be a little slimmer and the waist lower)

Middle- Another RTW top I got at Target for $2, it has the cutest best friends motif on it. Again I used my modified Otto pattern. The pants are a burda style bootleg cord pattern (Great pattern)

Bottom- A womens RTW top from an opshop, I modified the Otto Creative w'shop pattern to make this top. (The motif suits her PERFECTLY!)
