Glam sunsuit

I had a 1/2 yard of this cool Robert Kaufman geometric print fabric and some metallic gold bias tape I'd been hanging onto for a rainy day, and one day it came to me that they were MFEO.

I used Little Betty Designs' sunsuit tutorial and MADE's bloomers pattern and adapted it just a tiny bit so that I could use the bias tape for the elastic casings at the top and the legs.


As I was working on it, I was afraid the gold might make it a little "richest little divorcee in Palm Springs," but I don't think those fears were realized.    



It's definitely glam, but it's still "baby glam," I think.  The coolest thing is that it cost $10 to make, accounting for thread, snaps, the whole nine yards.  



And it has the added benefit of highlighting the cutest little thigh rolls evah.

This one is just because... omg, y'all.  Really.

  1. Oh, shoot. I had a couple of nice comments left on this one, but when I went to hit "publish," Helen kicked my arm and I hit "delete" instead. So I guess you will jut have to take my word for it that at least two people read this once. ;-)

  3. So so adorable! And I know exactly what you mean about the Palm Beach look..a few weeks ago I started a pinafore with bloomers for my nine month old in an Amy Butler print (peacock) and a coordinating turquoise-teal linen and a few minutes into sewing I had an "Oh snap" moment where I realized it looks so Palm Beach old lady golf club! Uuuggggh and of course I spent $35 on the fabrics and thread..I'm so upset! That is exactly why i stick to tans, browns, creams, pinks, and the occasional gingham or Liberty print!! Boring, safe, but still extremely girly and French-looking. Not, um, Florida-looking.

    It's so good to know someone out there understands me! Lol:)
