Alice in Wonderland Sunsuit for Kids Clothes Week

While the proper name for this style garment is under debate, there is no debate that this is a cute one!   Depending on your age and geographic location, this garment might be called a sunsuit, playsuit, romper, or other.

It's my first finished project for Kid's Clothes Week summer season.  This is the first season I've been able to sew along every day.  With five kids at home all year - I was so excited to find out three would be gone all week in the morning to VBS.  I've spent the mornings sewing with only two kids at home.  The theme is traveling so with this project we are traveling with Alice to Wonderland.  

I used  the Flutterby Playsuit pattern from Little Kiwi's Closet, which  I received for free last fall to participate in a blog tour (with no other compensation or strings attached).  I finally cut into my Kokka Alice in Wonderland double gauze (I bought a while ago from the Imagine Gnats shop) and I am so glad I used it for this project.  The result is so cozy and lightweight, I will probably have her wear it as often as possible.

I used the flutter sleeve option on the pattern and chose to use french seams for the sides and sleeve attachment.  I made my own bias binding (instructions included in the pattern) for the leg holes, and I bought a strip of snaps at JoAnn Fabric because I wanted something nicer and more durable than my Kam Snaps for this project.  I'll add pictures of the inside and snaps tomorrow when the lighting is better.

I also get to count this sew as a Sew Your Pattern Stash sew for the Summer Stash-a-thon!  And I made a second which I hope to feature tomorrow.
