Speaking of Christmas cookies, my kids wanted a non-traditional chocolate frosting. No red and green cookies this year!
Also higher on the list was this little romper for a friends' baby. I recently got to see two long-time friends who each had fresh babies. You can see the first outfit I made here. I used the same pattern here, but added sleeves to make a quicker-to-make one-piece outfit.
To add sleeves, I traced a new armscye and sleeves from a knit shirt pattern, as armscyes in sleeved garments are different from those in sleeveless.
No, the stripes on either side of the invisible zip don't match perfectly. After two tries, I despaired of ever lining them up, especially after realizing I'd forgotten to stabilize the area.
I still think it's cute, though. I remember some similar stripey rompers my boys had as toddlers.
