Happy first day of summer!
Though it may have felt like summer before, today is the official first day of summer and I wanted to celebrate by offering you a pattern I drafted for my little girl, Skye. She's not quite big enough to fit into it, but I'm attempting to plan ahead (shocking, right?).
A great feature of the pattern is that it can be created in both knit and woven. The knit version will fit with slightly more room and will likely wear longer, but that isn't too surprising.
The woven version is made from a mustard colored men's shirting cotton. It's very light for hot summer days. It has larger arm openings to reeeeally let your baby breathe. You can choose 1- 3 buttons or snaps for the back enclosure and another three for the crotch to keep diaper changes quick.
I made the knit version out of an old gap dress that was gifted to me. It's extremely soft, but a little thicker (hence the slight droop in the photos). It would do well with a light under shirt for cooler nights. I like the basic grey as it can be paired really easily. I'm such a sucker for basic mix & match pieces. They make getting out the door a possibility& I loathe being late.
