A beautiful cashmere blend Christmas sweater that was mistakenly felted in the wash + scrap hemp fabric from cloth diapers + an Ottobre pajama pattern = a really warm romper for the baby!
I just placed the pattern pieces over the old sweater and added the gusset. The ribbed knit provides a nice trim and a place to attach open-ring snaps for closure at the shoulders.
|patches for the knees even though the little guy just learned to turn over|
|detail shot: crotch gusset and cowboy socks just because|
|polo shirt collar and placket saved|
|bottom hem conserved, ribbed knit and open-ring snaps added for closure|
