Pattern: Simplicity 8494 (O.O.P.)
Size: Newborn, 1-3 months
Fabric: Liberty, Tana Lawn from stash
I made this little romper for Baby last weekend and just put on the snaps this morning. I used a vintage pattern that I bought at the Goodwill a few years back and made the romper from a small, remnant piece of Liberty fabric. I also cut up a maternity top that had a huge rip in it, and used that fabric for the inside of the yoke. I sewed French seams and encased the raw edges along the bottom edge of the yoke in bias tape. I added light-weight interfacing where the snaps are located and top stitched where necessary. I love my Bernina top stitching foot!
Initially, I thought I was going to sew buttons along the shoulder closures, but I realized that I need a lesson in making button holes and a special foot for my machine.
We are starting to see signs of spring around Copenhagen. I'm happy to say that I made it through my 3rd Danish winter alive!
On our bike ride around the lake this morning, Ethan noticed that the lake "un-ice." Thank goodness for that!
Whenever the sun is out, we are out in it. That is what living in Copenhagen has taught us.
I love this boy so much!
Thursday marked the 1 year anniversary of my mom's passing. It's hard to believe she has been gone a year...I have a feeling she is looking down from heaven and is excited about everything happening in my life and Alex's.
