A couple weeks back I showed you all what I had sewn for MissE in my Sewing for Kindergarten post. I got a few request to break down the post and give you more details on each one. So this week I will go through all the looks of the week. Today is all about Monday's Jumpsuit.
Little MissE is not a fan of exercising, apparently she doesn't like her gym class especially when it's outside. They have to run so much as it makes her sweaty. Have I ever told you she was a princess? She doesn't like the sand and getting dirty, she is quite lazy and gets oh so tired quickly especially when walking is involved. Poor little girl! So I thought it would be nice to get her in the mood by making her a fun gym outfit!
Something easy to put on, comfortable and a little stylish while we are it. I found the fleece a while back at my local thrift shop and just love this color- always have. The zipper is also a thrift find, I must be hoarding it for ummm 10 years, now! So all in all this outfit cost be maybe 5$.
I made the neckline low, to accommodate the zipper I had on hand. I also added some elastic to keep the neckline from drooping and it adds a little femininity and cute detail. Perfect for layering and to add some color.
I added some kangaroo pockets, because who doesn't love pockets? It also gave the jumpsuit more of that urban sweatshirt look I was going for.
I added an elastic band at the back waistline, to give a little shape to the jumpsuit while keeping the overall fit relaxed especially on top. Sorry for the blurry photo, it was the only shot I took.
I made the sleeves just like a kimono sleeve. Kept all the edges raw and rolled both the sleeve and cuff hem, that way I can just roll them down as she grows.
Next up is a little underwear and camisole set I made years ago for a collection I had created. It fits MissE perfectly now.
The fabric is a lovely 100% cotton pique, it has the smallest little holes and is just so sweet. I still have plenty left as I had bought quite a bit to sew up my collection. The ruffles are made from a cute polka dot print also 100% cotton and also have plenty of that leftover. Maybe I should start selling some on Etsy or something.
So don't forget to come back tomorrow for Tuesday's outfit.
