“Turned out very cute.”

My latest PDF Pattern is so cute! It has that retro look with an updated style. This is a detailed pattern with step by step instructions. Some sewing experience is helpful. I did put this together with the new sewer in mind with plenty of detailed instructions and pictures.

Beautiful Sun suit, but a little confusing.

This is so sweet and fun to make for little ones. I enjoy making this for first year birthday girls. My mom used to put my sister and I in bubble suits 30+ years ago so for me to be making them for the granddaughters now is really special!

Very cute sun suit! The pattern is not difficult to follow, but you definitely need sewing skills to complete this. Some of the instructions should be more detailed. For example, when sewing the crotch it just states to sew the crotch. There are no additional instructions or pictures on how to sew it. Overall, this is a very cute outfit! I was very pleased with the end result.

Love this pattern, my favorite that I've made so far. I made a red seersucker one for my daughter and another for my niece. I got so many compliments on them. One part of the pattern is a little hard to get through but overall very cute and easy.

It is a super cute outfit to make BUT the pattern REALLY needs updating. There are several things that could be improved to make it easier to complete. There are far too many things you have to figure out on your own. Plus there are several typos in the pattern pieces. The 2T pieces don't line up either.

This sunsuit is precious! I had a little trouble with how the waistband connected to the bodice. I improvised a bit and made it work. The pictures are a great help. It is by far, one of the cutest sunsuits ever! I left the ruffle off and sewed the straps to the back elastic piece, criss-crossed them, and fastened with self covered buttons for a boy. It was equally cute.

I just finished making this and it is SO cute! I'd give it 5 starts but there were a couple things on the pattern and/or instructions that could use an update to make this outfit easier to complete. (1) The pattern piece for sizes 3T-8 called the "Back Elastic piece" (pg 111-112) is missing the detail on it that you need to cut on fold. Part A of the piece is missing cut lines for each size (they only show on Part B). Part A says the piece is for "All Sizes" but it's actually only for sizes 3T-8. And since it's missing those cut lines, it appears as if you'd cut a rectangle with a notch but that's not the case (it should be a full rectangular piece). (2) I guess it's assumed but the pattern doesn't tell you when to serge or zigzag raw edges (mostly on the bloomers as most of the seams on the bodice are encased). (3) For sizes 2T and up you sew the crotch (in lieu of snaps) and that's the only details you get. Pics or more detailed instructions on how/where to sew the crotch piece correctly would be super helpful for people who don't sew a lot of pants. I'd say I'm an intermediate level sewer and I had to seam rip and figure it out on my own. Overall, though this is one of the cutest little outfits ever and the instructions were thorough with great instructional pictures (which I personally find more clear than written instructions a lot of the time). I'll definitely be making more of this pattern, especially now that I've worked out the kinks.
