Today I’m joining up with the Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop lullaby line tour! I’ve blogged about many Peek-a-boo patterns in the past (Coastal Craze shorts and Lazy Day rompers here, the Classic Oxford here, just to name a few), and I haven’t met one I didn’t like.
The Lullaby Line is sold as a bundle [affiliate link] with every pattern you could need for baby basics or you can purchase each pattern individually. The patterns include the bodysuit and lap tee, shorts/pants, hat/mittens, gown, baby and toddler sleepsack, and the overalls. A couple are just for babies [like the gown and the hat/mittens], but some of these patterns go up to size 4T, and the sleepsack goes up to a 5/6.
I was pretty psyched to sew the bodysuit. I mean, babies pretty much live in these things. And if you don’t have a baby, you probably know someone having one who will need like fifteen million bodysuits.
I upcycled one of my hubby’s old shirts, and it came together super quickly and easily. My almost 11month old is a little peanut, so I sewed the 9month size, but used the 12month length, since he wears cloth diapers. I also added longer cuffs to the sleeves.
The overalls are fantastic. They can be made in nearly every fabric [knit, woven, fleece, corduroy…] and have some options to girly them up too. And I think even a beginning sewer could sew these up with Amy’s clear pictures and instructions.
He’s pretty content to be ruffle-free, though. I sewed the 9month size again, but with the 12month length, so he has some room to grow. I will probably add another snap setting on the strap, because the top is a little big on him. But like I said, he’s itty bitty. :)
They have these great side vents and you can add pockets in the front and/or the back. I think that overalls are a great way to showcase a super cute print. Like this mushroom fabric. Mushrooms! So adorable. [I got it from Drawstring Studio, though she doesn’t have it in stock right now]
I love sewing comfy clothes for my kiddos, that they can nap and play in without being restricted. I love that about Peek-a-boo patterns!
