Double Time

Two babies, two fabrics!

 Fabric A: a light-weight cotton/poly french terry in a creamy off-white. Its smooth on the outside, loopy on the inside. Or reverse it for a cool texture! This fabric washed up so soft and comfy, really perfect for a spring weight sweat shirt. 

HERE it is in the shop!

three cheers for fabric!

 Fabric B: Cotton knit chevron print in heather blue. This one is so cool! The chevron is printed on the fabric so the reverse is just the darker blue color. It washes up quite soft and the pattern is just awesome. It looks a little lavender in some of the shots, but it's really more of a blue. 

 HERE in the shop!

 Sweatshirt Pattern: I downloaded this free pattern from Brindle & Twig. It ran a tad small but I love the design. I used the french terry for the body and the chevron for the hood lining, the front pocket and the accent strips at the shoulder seems. I cut the strips for the accent on the cross grain along one chevron and it makes it look like a band of diagonal stripes. Love!

 Check out their other patterns too. They are geared towards babies and toddlers and I have several in my list of must have patterns. I think the next one will be THIS super cute romper. Won't Rosie look amazing in it?!

Skirt/leggings pattern: Winged it. I traced some leggings that fit over Rosie's ample bootie and drafted a half circle skirt that fit the opening. Then sewed them together at the top, added a line of stitching to make a casing and slipped in some elastic. So easy, really cute, low bulk and stays put!

Next up will be a pair of shirts for some besties!
