I decided I'm giving up on sewing baby clothes. They are too demanding. At least some patterns are.
I made this cute little outfit. We do need baby boy clothing in our shop and there are really some cute patterns out there. My girls haven't had time and I decided to give it a try. I made those overalls with the smocking and gave myself a low grade on that one.
This outfit is cute and I'd give myself a much better grade on it, but it was time consuming. And the problems with lots of little seams.
These pockets and sleeves have little tucks that took me a while to work out. I redid the sleeves about three times to get the raw edge tucked under correctly. I kept missing.
And the last thing I did was put the snaps on the legs. I decided not to use snap tape because it only came in white. So I did my own snaps and they went on quite easily, better than I thought they would. Only I have the legs overlapping the wrong direction. They should snap towards the back not the front.
At least they look neat.
I think I will hire my girls to make outfits for the shop. Then it can go on their list as if I'm another customer. I just have to give them two weeks (normal turn-around time).
