A few of you guys have asked whether I made something for my new niece, and I did, so I thought I’d put it out here.
I didn’t have that much time to make it, meaning it couldn’t be too complicated, and I still wanted it to be sweet and usable. I made the Nirunaru-dress from Ottobre for Frida a while ago (this was before I blogged about my sewing), and we have been using it quite a bit, over a long period of time, because it fits over several sizes. It is good for warm as well as chilly weather, because it can be worn over a onesie or a blouse to fit the conditions. I decided to make that for my niece along with a pair of matching pants.
The pants are a modified Onion-pattern, which in my opinion is great for babies. I left a small opening at the waist to make it easy to change the elastic, if needed. I added little details like flower-tags on both pieces, and ‘M’s for her name.
The bird-fabric is one of my favourites from Amy Schimler’s “On A Whim”-line, and the dotted fabric is from Moda.
I really like the way it turned out – the two pieces will be sweet together as well as by themselves, which is a good thing. I think they were pleased with it as well!
