For Paddy – vintage Simplicity 6948
Here’s some Monday morning gorgeous for you because….CUTE! This is Paddy – newly minted one year old, prolific babbler, perpetually busy, happy (SO happy), lover of balls and son of my good friend Caroline. I first spied this sweetness over on Kelli’s blog and decided to make Paddy a pair of linen overalls for his 1st birthday. Truly, there’s an irrestible abundance of kids vintage patterns available on both Etsy and eBay and *sigh* kids in overalls. Does it get any more adorable?
I managed to hunt down the same pattern Kelli used – vintage Simplicity 6948 – and the fabrics were both from the stash. The main one is a fine blue and white linen check (as used over on this Jac Shirt) and the facings are a Liberty tana lawn.
See that bit of white stitching just below the diamond on the back?
Yeah, I made a little mistake there but Paddy doesn’t mind. He’s just pretty focused on showing you how well he can sit on his ball….
