Nautical equipment

ImageAs I already told you, you`ll see a lot of rompers around here. Are you already tired of it? I`m not. It`s kind of an obsession. This one is made from a lillestoff knit. And some local bought polka dot fabric. I love sewing with knit`s since i`ve got a serger, it`s so easy to get a nice and clean result. And for a kiddo it`s just so comfortable.

ImageThe pattern is, as usual for my rompers, self drafted. I`ve a lot of fun playing around with different designs. This time a made a crossed strap in the back and just to add some cuteness, I drafted a tiny knot. I inserted the elastic with my (new) coverlock machine. It took my years to work it out, just couldn`t find the right setting. In the end i`m quite content with the result. It`s not perfect but it look`s nice. I hope i`ll get the hang of this machine someday. May you`ve any tips for me?

ImageToday was one of the first summer days here (we don`t get too many of them every year, here in switzerland). So it was the perfect thing to wear. Love to dress her in my handmade clothes. They`re made with so much love, just for her.


ImageThe cap she`s wearing is 25 years old. Even if it`s from Walt Disney, I love it.

Hamburger Liebe

ImageOh, how I love rompers. It`s a little obsessively. A baby in a romper, ins`t that darling? I`m allways kind of melting away. So that`s why you probably gonna see a lot of rompers around here. Until my girl can refuse to wear one. Today I would like to show you the Hamburger Liebe romper, I made as a gift for a sweet little baby girl, who has just the same age as my little bean. But before I gifted it away I had to take some pictures of it. I`m in love with the fabric. It`s so colorful and the quality is really nice too. And I heard, the new collection is just released these days. Can`t wait until the fabric arrives in my local store.

ImageThe pattern is self drafted, and it pleases me. So i`m thinking about to write a tutorial and maybe a free pattern the next days. Would you like that?


ImageA close view on the front bodice. I added some piping for an extra pop of color. Not really necessary when you look at the print. But anyway I like it. ImageAnd the back. I`m thrilled how this closure came out. It happened by accident. I forgot to add seam allowance. So what to do, this was the best idea, that came into my mind. And what should i say. It wouldn`t be the same without. I kind of like sewing accidents. I always have to scretch my head about it, but mostly, after all, something creative comes into being.

ImageThat`s how it looks from the inside. I`m currently in love with finishing of leg openings with bias tape. Here I made a casing for the elastic, looks clean from the inside, doesn`t it?

ImageA happy baby.

Pleated Romper


The pattern for this sweet little romper is self draftet, from a basic bodice i made for my little one. The pleating is improvisational. I`ve been inspired by this tutorial. In fact, i had no other option than pleating. Since i made this romper from a shirt i bought at the streetmarket in italy last month. There was just nomore fabric left. So you have to go with what you have, right? It was a happy coincidence, the pleating adds a special touch to the bodice. I`m normally not the ruffle typ. But in this case, i like it. I`m pleased whit the result. My sweet little beanburger is quite tall for her 8 months. I had to add some lenght. And because there was no fabric left. I had to attach a solid blue strip to the bodice.


For easy diapper changing, i installed some snaps. The Romper is fully lined whit a nice blue cotton, because the fabric was very lightwight and slightly see-through.


In the back a went for snaps too. So it`s easy to get it on and off. My baby doesn`t really like to shift cloths. It has to go fast. I`m sure this little romper will get widely used this sommer.
