Christmas Outfits

I finished my babies' Christmas outfits today, for now anyway. You never know what may happen when my nesting kicks in sometime in the next couple of weeks. Anyway, I did two jumpers for my little girl last month and then today I completed little baby Caleb's overalls. For the overalls, I used Baby Kay's Boutique Boys' Romper pattern (available on Etsy and You Can Make This), which was super duper easy until I got to the sewing in the snap tape part. I was so excited to find a cute boys' pattern with an option for easy diaper changing, however, the actual execution of it was extremely frustrating. I hate sewing in zippers and single fold bias tape. They are two things I refuse to do unless it is absolutely necessary and not at 8 1/2 months pregnant. Today, snap tape was added to that list. So, when I did do the second outfit, I used my snap pliers that I use to make paci-clips, and I was so much happier! I plan on making lots of overalls with this pattern, and will definitely use the snap pliers on all future attempts. The pink jumper is made from the Vivienne Jumper pattern that I found for free on Burdastyle a few months ago, and the red one is from a New Look pattern that I have used so much it is about to fall apart. I could sew that thing in my sleep I have done it so many times!
