Sewing Attention Deficit Disorder.
My attention shifted from making tops to making a pattern that happened to be sitting on top of my to-do pile.
It's a romper style pattern called Zephyr by Figgy's Patterns.
The instructions clear and easy to understand.
It did take me quite awhile to make it though. Whenever I use a new pattern it always seems to go slowly first time around but after that, I can bang 'em out much more quickly.
Next time around though, I might add maybe a half inch (1.25 cm) to the leg band ties. It might make tying a little easier.
I chose big buttons for the closure because Caitlin is now dressing herself and larger buttons might be easier for her to manipulate.
Next time around I'll only use 2 buttons instead of 3.
The fabric is knit and the green contrast is Kona cotton.
Here's the back of the romper.......
While I was taking these pictures, a Ruby Throated Hummingbird was buzzing right over my head.
You know what I don't get; in the song 'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes' by Crosby, Stills and Nash, the lyrics are "chestnut brown canary, ruby throated sparrow". Well, those birds don't exist but there are chestnut brown warblers and of course, to wit, ruby throated hummingbirds.
I'm off track again, aren't I.
Okay, so the other reason I made this pattern was my daughter really likes romper patterns and asked if I could make one or two. Maybe three.
So I've made this one and am completely happy with the results.
I'm sure she'll like this romper too and be 'thrilled to the marrow'!
