Heidi from Elegance and Elephants was really fun to work with and super sweet about our suggestions. She even asked if we would consider testing for her in the future. She is releasing this free pattern as a big giant thank you to all of her faithful fans and followers.
Here is how our pattern testing turned out.
I made mine from two shirts so I was limited on fabric. Scary made her short pant out of $1/yrd fabric from Walmart last spring and straps from remnant fabric from another project. The other is quilters cotton from Home Fabric for $3 a yrd.
This took both of us about 3 hours, for sewing per playsuit.
I (Jo) made the 2T-3T size. It fits her perfectly!
Scary made the shorts and pants 12-18 mo. size (18m length for the pants) and she felt like the back was just a tad tight with a diaper (she did 1/2" seams and missed the 3/8" seam instructions in the opening pages).
The leg bands gave it a little extra somethin' somethin'.
The ties were dainty and adorable.
|Do you see the frosting on Boston's cheek? Yep food is a hidden secret for us Sisters to get our kids to cooperate in photo shoots and she was all out of pink marshmallows so this time it was Krispy Kreme doughnuts.|
And the pockets were a big hit!
|Heidi planned the pockets so the lining would give a pipping look. It is very cute but probably is one of the most time consuming parts of the pattern|
Boston and Scary are suckers for the pleat detail that runs in the front of the shirt.
This is a really fun play suit. I hope you head over to Elegance and Elephants on
Friday TODAY (She released it early) and get the PDF for your free pattern.
