Baby Ahoy!

My regular stitching is interrupted this week due to the arrival of two new relatives. First up, for baby Isabelle, is a sailor dress and bloomers (because all sailors wear bloomers, right?). The blue bandana-print fabric is leftover from my recent blouse.

I love the sailor collar with the trim, although I'm sure it's not a style I'll make too often.

The dress is the Mariner Sailor Dress (Ottobre 3-2009-15) and the bloomers are the Cassia velour shorts (Ottobre 3-2009-2), which I've made a handful of times. Both are size 62, which equates to a size 3 months, but the dress seems very wide and roomy.
Stay tuned for the baby boy version of this outfit!


  1. How CUTE !! I hope to see them modeled.


  2. So sweet....I've often admired this outfit in Ottobre.

    what sort of trim did u use for the collar?

  4. Hi Misty, the trim I used was 1/4" middy braid. I was looking for a narrower gimp, but couldn't find any in my local shops.
