Baby Legging and Circle Skirt

May 25, 2015

I had the pleasure of attending a first birthday party on the weekend.  It was actually for the little girl who I gave this quilt to at her baby shower.  Its hard to believe she's one already!

I love sewing little girl things!  They are so fun and you can normally go a little over the top and use fun colours and fabrics that I can't really wear (Case and point Ice Cream Playsuit - also given to the recipient on the weekend!).

I made a super simple pair of leggings, using this amazing free pattern from  I didn't really follow the tutorial, I'm a little fussy about the hems on pants I make and prefer to do them the traditional way.

I used a scrap of knit fabric that I had left over from a dress I made.  Reason #1575 I love making baby clothes is the ability to use scrap fabrics!
I also made a little full circle skirt out of some hot pink rayon.  I used a frilly elastic to add some interest and a fancy stitch on the hem to create a scalloped effect.

I think they look adorable together and should be prefect coming into winter.

I was worried they would be too small but I was pleased when I was assured they would!
