Connor's Playsuit

Isn't it fun when kids are still young enough to let you impose your sense of humor on their wardrobe? He he. I finished Connor's little velour playsuit today and he was so excited to wear it, he didn't care that it's still 90 degrees outside. I swear, if I wasn't such a chicken when it comes to my own wardrobe, I would make myself one too.

Doesn't that look comfy?

And stylish?

Here's the back. I used a pattern from the Ottobre design magazine, issue 6/2010. The fit is awesome -- all I had to do was hem the legs and arms a bit more than called for. The pattern was a bit time consuming, but sooo worth it. I found this stretchy striped velour on Another lucky break for not seeing and feeling it beforehand. I only bought 2.5 yards and wish I had way more... for shirts, sweatpants, pillows...

There's a little waistband on there, but you can't really see it because I was so careful matching up the stripes. Oh well.

  1. That's awesome that you can't see the waistband--you did a FABULOUS job getting those stripes right! Too cute!
