Button Up Shirt Onesie 1

Around here Henry and I have been working on sleep training. I tried one technique which was way hard on me, so after talking to his pediatrician we're trying a modified cry it out. It's helping me be a way better mom because I'm not so tired all the time. To help me cope with sleep training, I've been sewing a lot more than I really have time for.
I made Henry a little collared button up onesie from one of my brother's old shirts. He looks so handsome.
I used Sophie's, from Roubidoushirt onesie pattern
Pros:
-It's free and printable from home. LOVE!
-It has good tips to use the details from an original button-up shirt (like keeping the original sleeve placket on the baby sleeve).
-She shows how you can use it for girls or boys.
Cons:
-It is not 3-6 month size. It is more like 0-3 month size. Henry will only be able to wear this for a week or two because it's so small. He's not even a big baby; he's only in the 50th percentile.
-The instructions were a little hard to understand, so I had to figure it out on my own. This is more for an intermediate sewer.
I think I'm going to fiddle with the pattern to a fit I like better and make another one that's bigger, so Henry can wear it for longer.

  2. After 3 kids, I don't know if anyone ever gets the sleep training down. Good luck, hope the new method works better.
    The shirt is so cute. But I need it in a 6-9 month size. This would be so great for Sunday shirts, and way cheaper!

  5. Heather, this is the cutest thing ever. Henry is such a little gentleman. He's lucky to have a mom who can dress him so well. And an aunt who loves him so much. :)
