"Sew Vintage" Flouncy Sun Suit and Hat is just like the outfits that I made for my daughter 30 years ago. I remember making 5 in one day. One for each day of Vacation Bible School the following week.
All color coded sizes from 3 months to 24 months are included for both the sun suit and hat.
The neck of the sun suit has a elastic casing for a comfortable fit which ties into a bow in back.
The legs have elastic casing and instructions are given for an optional snap crotch.
The back also has an elastic waist with 3 rows of flouncy ruffles.
The hat pattern is included with the sun suit pattern. It has 2 rows of flouncy ruffles with a pretty bow tied in the back. The hat pattern is also available as a separate pattern.
I do not have a fairy tale or quaint story to tell. I am just a hard working mother of 5 children and now I am raising 2 teen granddaughters. I have a great husband who even finds time after his long day to compliment me on my sewing designs.
I started sewing in the third grade. I have been sewing for over 50 years. My daughter and granddaughters still kid me about being a fashion designer when I criticize their choice of attire. I am ancient in their eyes. Most of my designs are from when I sewed for my daughter 30 years ago. That makes me and my designs VINTAGE!
Over the years, I have studied many different and correct sewing techniques. I started out with basic sewing for 4H club competition and later learned couture sewing techniques for state contests. I started college with sewing and design contest scholarships, majoring in fashion design but later switched to business. When my daughter was little, I went to sewing school and learned French hand and machine sewing techniques and smocking. My patterns will show how to accomplish many of these techniques. The patterns will give you the choices of just basic sewing on a plain sewing machine, options for finer sewing techniques and tips on sewing with a serger. All of my patterns are designed and written with the beginner seamstress in mind.
