Baby Ahoy, part II

Now we have sailor baby set #2, for my other cousin's baby. The recipients of these two outfits are cousins and their grandma (my aunt) must be about to die of happiness with two grandbabies born within a few weeks of each other.

The little top is the Skipper Sailor Shirt (Ottobre 3-2009-13). Like the matching dress, it is small but seems wide. Maybe it won't look wide on small, round baby Lucas. I used a nice crisp cotton sateen for the collar - it was the only white fabric I had on hand besides batiste and happily it's the perfect weight.

And the shorts are the Ahoy Baby Shorts from Ottobre 3-2009-13. They have a mock fly front and a back yoke. Both the top and shorts are made of chambray from I used so little of my yardage with these tiny garments, I have plenty left for whatever I was going to make in the first place.

Now back to my regularly scheduled stitching.


  1. Another lovely outfit. Lucas will be so cute in them!

  2. They are SO CUTE! Lucky cousins!

  3. Both your girl and boy outfits are darling! I too have a baby boy outfit I must sew for. I love what you did with wovens, but I have a lot of knits from when my boys were infants. Yay, a chance to use them up! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. omg woman!! that is so cute!!! i've been eyeing this pattern for so long but just havent got around to sewing it.... :P love both the outfits!!
