|I loved this fabric!|
I need something for nursing Sophia while at Church and other public places. My dear sister-in-law had a really cool cover that she uses and I have seen other ladies at church with them. I found this great tutorial at Sew-Much-Ado to make my own nursing cover. This way I could pick the fabric and add conveniences - - like a pocket for items that I may need - - prayer cards, a rosary, a burp rag, whatever. I have enough fabric left over that I may make Sophia a pair of soft shoes, using Michelle's pattern and tutorial found here.
I put in a basting stitch along the serged edge so that I could gather the material to make it match the onesie.
Matching the side seam with one of the side seams on the onesie, I pinned the sides and then gathered, evening the gathers out on front and back and pinning as I went.
Then I sewed around , flipped the garment right side out and stitched along the bottom of the onesie part, catching both fabrics. Then I stitched a casing for elastic at the bottom. Lastly, I threaded the elastic through the casing, stitched the elastic, and casing closed. Done!It's not perfect, but okay enough for sleepwear and my first one. I want to find long-sleeved onesies and do some more for colder weather. I will also make the jersey skirt longer, as Sophia has only a few inches until her feet stick out.
