Ok so there was not blog post on Monday. The day just got away from me as I was sewing up some samples to show a local gift shop. Was it worth it? Yes!!! Grammies Dolls fashions will soon be available in a local gift shop in Littlestown PA. More to come on that later.
Now I know today is Thursday and I normally post on Wednesdays but I have something that will make up for the delay. Today I have the very first boys outfit for you. There is a definite lack of boutiques that provide for out lil male friends so here is one to delight.
I remember seeing rompers for baby boys when I was a child and they have always been in the back of my mind. When my grandsons were babies I made them clothes. And kept them dressed in little rompers. So I decided right before Easter to make sure my neighbors little grandson was given the same blessing.
This little sailor suit is the first of my boys listing but wont be the last. The pattern for this outfit is a mashup or mix of two designers. The first being on of my go to designers, Ellie Inspired, we know I love her patterns you see them often. The other designer is quickly winning her way into my line up as will, Jen over at Tie Dye Diva is super as well.
So the hat is from Tie Dye Diva and available in her website. The romper top come from Tie Dye Diva’s Sailor Dress pattern, and the bottom of the romper is the bottom of the Vintage Baby pattern from Ellie inspired.
I moved the opening of the Vintage baby to the from to match up with the Sailor dress opening in the front. So the romper close in the front with buttons.
This set can be made in sizes 0-3 months to 24 months and allows room for both cloth diapered bums or disposable diapered bums.
After the outfit was done and I was happy with it I presented it to my neighbor and her daughter who furnished my adorable model and both were thrilled with both the fit and the look of the outfit. I also did some internet searching the the closest comparisons I could find to this outfit were only available in the UK and cost in excess of $60,00.
