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.

That is so sweet. LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabric - may I ask where you got it from. The pants look great too - shame they are are too big - will have to remember that pattern number as I find that most are too small for our cloth bum!

While the sewing on the baby set is indeed adorable, like Kylie I can't get past that fabric - it's to die for!
Love the pants - hope the next pair fit how you want them to.
