What Would Celina Do? Pink Jumpsuit

12:00 am

I'm very very excited to bring you today a top-secret little sewing event thought up & organised by the lovely Laura of Craftstorming! The idea is that a mass amount of bloggers from around the blogosphere would create something inspired by the lovely Celina of Petit a Petit and Family and on the same day we simultaneously post our creations! Celina is a very inspiring woman, she seems to have her finger in every pie and uses every single of the 24 hours given to her every day I swear! She is amazing and I really enjoy 'knowing' her!


I decided to recreate this jumpsuit for Edison. I really love the origmai-esque folding at the front there, and it was much easier than it looked to do! Celina used the Fancy Pants leggings pattern ad then added a bib front and straps to her jumpsuit for her daughter.


I didn't put interfacing in the bib, but I think I should have! I really love how simple it was to fold! It took me a little unpicking to realise that the straps should go on the SIDE of the bib instead of the top where most straps go. The way the fold changes the bib shape means the straps sit different.



Instead of cross-over straps, I left them long and made them a halter neck. I love the way they sit on her cute little back!


I didn't add the waistband, just folded over the back and hemmed it. I think it sits a teensy bit too low because little Ed's nappy get poking up everytime she move and I had to keep tucking it in for the photos! Next time, waistband that!






The two-tone shoes were a last minute decision! I decided I wanted to do her shoes, but the only ones I had were these grey TOMS-esque babies from Best & Less ($8 yo!). Using Celina's tutorial here, I quickly & easily painted these shoes for the little shoot. Hitting them with the hairdryer made this like a 10 minute job!
