Oh dear. This didn’t turn out quite as well as I hoped… it looks like some kind of sci-fi civilian getup, doesn’t it? Carmen doesn’t seem too pleased with it either. What was I thinking? I’m such a smeghead, the fabric is waaay too heavy for the pattern.
The pattern is from my Making Baby Clothes book. This is my second attempt, the first is here. You’ll see that the first was much less structured and dramatic, so we can safely put this sci-fi escapade down to fabric choice.
I made it using leftover non-flowy fabric from my delphine skirt. Big mistake. Alas, it hasn’t been a total waste of time as I added some piping to this version…. uh-huh, that’s a new technique my friends…. and now to pipe everything!
