those baby bloomers!
I don't know why it is that I love these utterly impractical things so much, but I finally finished the ruffled baby bloomers last night. While sitting in my soon-to-be-new-mothers breastfeeding class. Which of course caused all sorts of interuptions as I sewed up the side seams and people started to realize what they were looking at...
I used the Baby Abby Ruffled Bloomers pattern from the Lion Brand website, but with modifications (of course). Since my own baby will wear cloth diapers, I figured she need more room underneath so I eliminated the drastic waist shaping and made it more straight up and down from the waistband to the leg openings. I also added a few short rows after the ruffles on the backside, to accomodate said cloth diapers. I am still debating on whether or not to add ribbing or ruffles to the leg openings (the pattern has directions for either option) but overall a quick cute knit. I used Online Solo color 12 for the ruffles, and Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) Yarn in color Grey(ish) for the body.
p.s. for Jenn: I purposely avoided including the dolls' face in these pictures, I didn't want to upset you as we head into the weekend! :-)
