Tonight’s make is from a New Look pattern 6636, I made pattern A And I thought this fabric was cute
so heres how I made it…….
All pieces cut out and ready to go..
First step was to sew inner leg pieces placing front and back right sides together and sew using a 1/3″ seam, once sewn press seam allowance back on its self.
Next step was to sew front and back middle seams together and once again press seams back on its self ( starting to look like its a romper now)
Next insert the zipper ….. Not my favourite thing to do, was very glad once it was in place a little wonky but in place.
Sleeves are up next, I decided to use bias-binding on the cuff edge, then I hand wound my bobbin with elastic thread & gave it a go with the sewing machine, I would of crossed my fingers at this point but I need them, it turn out pretty well just a little bit of pulling on the elastic just to get it to gather just right.
Very nice I think
I then pinned the sleeve to the sleeve hole starting at the shoulder seam and moving down each side fitting it just right, sew using a 1/3″ seam.
Next its time for the bootie part, I’m now feeling fairly confident so this should be a breeze right? …
yeah I don’t think so…. It kinda fiddly, the only tip for this one is to go slowly when sewing.
It looks cute when sewn though.
I joined the bootie to the bottom of the leg piece using the elastic thread and that is it finished, turn right side out give it a press with the iron and stand back and admire.
Very cute , I can hardly wait to see my nieces baby in it, just few months to wait though as she’s still keeping warm in her mummy’s tummy xx
