T-shirt Romper

Book:  Lockstitch Baby
Size:  70 cm
Fabric:  size L men's T

This one also started out as a T-shirt but this baby needed something cool for summer.  The romper was not as quick as the pull on pants but I'm very happy with the slim fit.  The placket is a bit messy and at that point I was kind of wishing I could read Japanese but got through it.   This is a good pattern for refashioning big T's into baby stuff.

And if you want to match your baby, here's a great tutorial  for re-fashioning a large boxy T for yourself.

T-shirt pants for Babies

Book:  Lockstitch Baby, Style #7
Size:  70 cm
Fabric:  Children's knit T

This is going to be my new favorite book!  There is nothing more satisfying than a quick sewing project when you have a little one to care for.

I also love the fit.  Sure these are simple enough to draft on your own but I don't have time for even that!  They fit great over a puffy cloth diaper so I know I'll soon be making piles of these.  Time to start picking up even more old T's.
