I'm sure there are a few mommas out there that have had the same trouble as I have in finding cute, classy little things for their young menfolk. As I started looking for things for my son, I began to despair as I searched. There just wasn't much that I liked..perhaps others did, but I had another idea for what I'd like to put my son in. I found a few in SewBeautiful..but not for my little baby...for later. Which reminds me that I need to order some of the patterns they referred to.
Just as I began to give up, I came across this pattern below:
This is Simplicity 5115..unfortunately out of print. I found it somewhere...not sure how now, and I decided to check if they still had it. Well, sure enough they did and I was able to order it and one other shirt pattern for my menfolk. I love this little pattern...the boy's rompers are adorable and classy, and just in case I have any more girls or know someone expecting one, I have a lovely pattern for them as well.
I plan on making a couple of the little rompers for Liam in the very middle example(blue with big pocket). I have the fabric:
I saw these fabrics awhile back and just loved them. So I will make one up in each of these...and if they turn out...I will make one more for a special someone:-)
The pattern pieces are traced and cut out, the fabric is washed and just needs to be cut out. I hope to begin these this weekend or next week. Right now I am finishing up a nightgown that I've been working on far too long for Fiona. It is close to being done, but she has grown so much since I began it that I'm afraid it will be too short...enter lace to the bottom:-) When I am finished I will share...hopefully she will be willing to model it. Oh, and I will definitely show off Liam's little rompers as soon as they are done...hopefully not too far in the future!
Happy Sewing :-D,
