Adjusting The Playsuit

This sweet little playsuit made by pattern #123, is just right for our hot summer days, and has been waiting for someone special to come along who could wear it.  So, last week I retired it from the Trunk Show and promoted it to Emma's closet.  But first it needed an adjustment...

Yes, the ice cream cones are hand stitched using the Satin stitch.  The ice cream cone design and Satin stitch instructions can be found in the "Heirloom Embroidery Book."

Emma is a short little thing, so the playsuit was a little long waisted for her.  Once again, hanging onto scraps is a good thing and I was able to find a scrap just the right size for a new waist band.  It didn't take any time at all to take off the old waist band and cut a new one, which also needed to be slightly longer.  I then shortened the front and back bib fronts by 1" and attached the new waist band.  Total adjustment time was less than 2 hours.  Not bad for a wearable outfit for our little sweetie!  :)

Thanks for the tips on adjusting the playsuit. I have the opposite problem of a tall granddaughter!
