We are looking at the Lap Tee - perfect for girls and boys - and go check out our awesome tutorial for adding a super adorable girly skirt to your Lap Tee Body Suit!
I sewed up two of these lickity split as a gift for my newborn niece... these are a size 3-6 months, so she can't model them yet, but I hope they will fit her through the summer. I was able to sew up both in a nap time - yay for quick and adorable patterns. To make them a bit more girly, I gave a slight A -line to the body and lengthened the lap tee by about 1.5 inches so that it will wear more like a tunic.
I paired up the tops with the adorable Monkey Pants from Terra's Treasures.
Now here is Jessica with a full review and pictures on her adorable boy!!!!!
I chose to sew up the Lap Tee version of this pattern. I really just did not want to mess with snaps or buying a kit, so I went with the easiest route. And boy, this was definitely a case of instant gratification. I love simple knit patterns because they usually take longer to print, tape, cut, and cut again than they do to sew. So in an hour, my little guy has a cool, new, mama-made tee. There are a lot of variations of this pattern that make it really versatile. You can do short or long sleeves (or even 3/4 if you're crafty) and a tee or bodysuit with snaps. I'm pretty sure I'll never have to buy another shower gift again! I'm definitely looking forward to sewing tees and bodysuits for friends with the guarantee that they won't get doubles!
Here are some cool features of this pattern:
- Sizes nb to 4 are included for both the tee and the bodysuit.
- There are only 6 patterns pieces with nested sizes.
- Lots of pictures and great instructions.
- Cuff and binding measurements ON the pattern pieces, so they are all in one place! (GENIUS!)
- Approximately 1 hour from cut to finish, give or take your sewing speed.
- Can be done with a serger or a regular machine!
