Pattern mash-up

Recently a family member asked me to make something for their daughter... They sent me a reference shot showing the buttons/collar and red...

I decided to have a go because after all who doesn't enjoy a bit of a challenge. I combined the Little Lizard King sunsuit pattern with the neckline and peter pan collar of Straight Grain's Bubble Dress pattern. I was not sure if it was going to work out, but after some fiddling and trial and error it worked out okay. Here is what I ended up with...

Pattern: Straight Grain's Bubble Dress with Little Lizard King's Sunsuit pattern. 
Fabric: White woven fabric I had laying around for the collar, super soft red cotton lawn for body from Spotlight.
Buttons: Vintage score from a second hand store.
Elastic: 1" elastic for back. Underwear elastic for around legs (makes life so much easier then encasing it)

Tutorial coming soon I promise!

Just a quick update today...

I have been very busy with picking up more hours at work and finishing my degree. I have one more exam to go on Wednesday and then I will spend Thursday madly sewing a bunch orders to post out Friday (I will try to remember to take photos to share with you). 

As promised the 'draft your kids underwear pattern' tutorial is coming up - probably next week as there won't be enough time until then.

I will leave you with these pictures for now though...
