Sometimes our sewing journey leads us in paths that we don't expect and a strange request from someone close leads us to the sections of the sewing books otherwise usually avoided. The sections with strange dog costumes and weird doll clothes and tissue box covers..Although I have to admit the dog Halloween costumes are good for a laugh.
Recently my daughter asked me to make her a 'onesie'. You know, a baby jumpsuit, 'with feet' but for an adult. "It's all the rage Mum, and kinda practical, don't you think". Visions of elegant outerwear for myself sank from my mind. Um..OK.. 'and it's got to have an elasticized panel in the back so the top tucks in like a shirt for midnight loo trips. I got the idea from one I saw in Target but I know you can make it better'..Um Yeah... 'and I've bought the material, it's kinda furry in blue and white chevrons..isn't it great?'...um Sure Darling. I love her a lot you know. No one else could get away with this.
That's is how I came to be looking through Halloween patterns for an all-in-one sleep suit. I found one but it didn't have feet..which led me to Kwik Sew 3926 and a quick project knocked out on the serger from leftovers. If nothing else I am being thrifty.
Hmm good for watching TV
