I have a weak spot for everything vintage. I love vintage cookbooks, vintage patterns, vintage inspired clothing etc so I when I saw this reprint of a vintage pattern, I had to have it and more importantly, I had to make it. Thank goodness I actually have a baby that can wear it otherwise I’d be stuffed.
It is pretty simple but cute outfit that works great in the Miami heat. The pattern called for lining the garment but I didn’t line it. Instead, I modified it and made a casing for the elastic as opposed to sandwiching it between the outer layer and the lining. My son wears cloth diapers which are pretty thick so his diaper sticks out the suit’s leg holes but that’s OK.
The pattern is Simplicity 3508 and I made view D (sans applique), the sunsuit/romper.
