i just made the 56cm ones (it took all of 10mins :mrgreen: )
and they look so cute and tiny :vibes:

but i feel a bit dumb cos i just strait stiched the hem and caseing, :wall: , and i thought i was doing really well getting them finished before i ran out of cotton (i have about 2m left :roll: )
so il grab some more cotton when i go shopping tonight and fix them.

Haha, I found some fabric that would be perfect for a matching top for the ones I made too - either one of those short sleeve tops with my legging fabric long sleeves, or using the legging fabric in some sort of applique on it :wink:

If you need another tester for the large pattern I could run some up for Leo :D

72cm vs 80cm patterns - right length for Olivia

ImageImage

But not quite high enough at the back (nappy has the same as when she tried the 80cm pair - hemp flat + microfibre insert)

That looks like it needs about 5cm added to it?
Thanks for the comparison

I have made the 86cm pair. I know just by looking at them that the legs will be too baggy round the bottom. not sure if that's because i used a REALLY stretchy ribbed Merino or if it's just the pattern - might have to try with a plain Cotton Lycra as well. Will try them on when he wakes up and get photos :D

Size 92cm but he is actually 96cm tall. My kids tend to have short legs and big bottoms :lol:

He is wearing an XL Fuzzi stuffed with one hemp trifold and a microfibre insert.
