I've managed to work in a little sewing off and on and finally finished an outfit in time for the boy to actually wear! I have loved the Little Memories smocking design "What a Zoo!" for years and was thrilled when Anna and I both picked it out for the new pattern #138.
The jumpsuit is made from blue pique' which is just the right weight for our chilly February weather. Made with long sleeves and ankle length, a light jacket is all he will need to stay nice and warm.
Centering the lion and leaving off the other animals kept that outfit from looking too busy. I also eliminated the fence and moved down the top cable row so that the design would fit on the insert.
Watch for the next blog for the insert tutorial!
