Pattern of the Week #115 Classic Bubble

Classic Bubble #115 is our featured pattern of the week. This pattern is timeless and can be made dressy or casual depending on your choice of fabric and trims. The pattern includes sizes 3 - 24 months, 3 styles of collars to choose from, a boy or girl sleeve, and accommodates smocking.

The first three photos were a wonderful surprise when they appear in Creative Needle Magazine Dec. 2007! I love the blue and white gingham and the white collar is perfect for a little embroidery and trim.

The collars on both outfit were trimmed with baby rickrack that was twisted together then stitched to the collar before construction. A super easy technique that adds just the right amount of color!

White Dupioni Silk makes this outfit dressy enough for baby dedication. This is the outfit that I recommend when I hear that the daddy doesn't want his son in a "dress!"

I added tiny tucks to the yoke before cutting it out and then decided that a little bow tie would be a nice touch. I had not made a bow tie in about 25 years, but it didn't take long before it all came back!
I was recently talking to a sewing friend and she had recently made bow ties for all her little grandsons to wear to a special wedding!
