Baby Boom

Posted on: 3 May, 06

Our school is experiencing a bit of a baby boom. Little girl gifts are always so much fun for me to sew. I fell in love with design #2 from the Summer ’06 issue of Ottobre. I angled the ruffles a bit more so it would look more “on purpose” as opposed to “I just can’t sew straight.” The fabrics were a gift from a friend and perfect for this project. Like most Ottobre designs, the sewing is quite simple, but the result is wonderful.

For a baby boy gift, I finished up the bit of construction vehicle knit that I had left over from a previous gift, as well as a bit of grey twill for the pants.
