Baby Crossover Pinafore and Bloomers

I have a new baby niece! With all the boys that are being popped out lately, I'm kind of happy to be sewing for a girl finally. So I had a go at the Criss Cross Pinafore and Bloomers by Melly Sews, which is a super easy free pattern.
I put coloured snap backs on both sides so that it becomes reversible! The lamb fabric is Woodland Tails by Riley Blake and I think I found the yellow floral fabric at Lincraft - it's been in my stash for years.

Then, because I just couldn't resist, I made matching ruffled bloomers to match both sides of the dress. I used the tutorial by Melly Sews to make the ruffles, but my own nappy cover pattern.
This is a 3-6m size, so I'll have to wait a while to see this little girl all ruffled up, but by that time it'll be the middle of summer so she'll be nice and cool in it. Heh I just realised it's not pink!

I had some other sewing projects on the go yesterday but ran out of elastic and interfacing even though I'd just been to Spotlight that morning. Ugh.


  1. gosh Mel this is beautiful, love that its reversible, & those ruffgles are cute. Ange

  2. this is adorable. I cannot get the pattern to print from melly sews….can you help me with this?
