Kwik Sew 3983 – Rosie’s Dungarees

Untitled

I absolutely love dungarees on children!  Though, when I say ‘dungarees’ here in Alabama, no-one knows what I’m on about.  They’re called rompers or jumpers here. Crazy. 😛 Anyway, this Kwik Sew pattern is just adorable and it’s one that I just couldn’t wait to make for Rosie.  I had acquired a random piece of pink fabric that had dark brown mini polka dots all over it.  I actually thought that the fabric was like a baby cord but it really wasn’t.

Simplicity 8304 – View D – 2 Versions

When I made my #2018makenine plans earlier on in the year, they contained baby clothes.  Yep, that’s right…baby clothes for my baby.  Quite often I still think that it’s crazy that I’ve got the opportunity to make clothes for MY baby.  Well, Rosie is now 8 months old and apart from a couple of accessories, I’ve actually only made 2 clothing items for her.  We were given the Simplicity 8304 Baby Gear pattern as a gift and I loved the little dresses so much.  I decided that this would be my first venture into sewing for Rosie!
