ahh.. this must be a dungarees week!
after having made one for little annabelle here , i have whipped out a boy’s version! this time it’s for baby caleb, who is just a little over a few weeks old (but i made this suit bigger – approx. size 6mth). i have been wanting to make something out of this jaunty fabric, and what better design than a classic “workwear” overalls for a little boy!
i’ve managed to minimise silly mistakes (except that i still cut/stitch one piece of the waist band upside down, duh, and never realised until after having pieced everything together – again!). the most ‘costly’ mistake this time was a tear from cutting the button hole with my seam ripper.. ahhh!!! (blame it on the flu medicine, and the fact that it was already past midnight when i was putting the final touches) i had to patch up the little defects with some hand sewing, but thankfully, it was quite a small tear.
well, i am loving these dungarees so much, i am planning and hoping to make a few more to sell online. (i received my ‘first’ ever order few weeks ago for a handmade fabric book for a little boy for christmas – i know, christmas is still a long way to go, but a very kind, lovely friend wanted to encourage me and give me ample time to make something special for her nephew. and did i mention that i have not done any fabric activity book so far?)
