More matching outfits!

Happy New Year, my dear readers and followers! May 2019 bring you great health, endless happiness and creativity! 

I'm kicking off 2019 by showing you more matching outfits, but I'll keep it short today, since you've seen it all before. It's another nursing sweatshirt and dungarees combo. 
First, the Papercut Undercover Hood. It's pretty much the same as the last version, except for the cropped length, and 9' "normal" (instead of 8' exposed) centred zippers this time. Click here for the tutorial on the nursing hack. 
The fabric is a marble effect loopback jersey in teal from Guthrie & Ghani (now out of stock/discontinued). I love the print, not only for its dramatic design, but also for the practicality of hiding the occasional stain that it will inevitably attract. 
There was change from my 1.6 metres of fabric, so naturally I decided to make something matching for Freya. 

To complement the marble effect fabric, I wanted something slightly different, but in a similar colourway. 
Fabric looking familiar? Yep, this is the combed cotton jersey that I used for the baby leggings. Whilst I cut the fabric strategically to leave out the stags for that project, I wanted a bit of festivity for these little dungarees.
And these dungarees knocked her socks off over Christmas. Literally. But I mean, what's not to like? Comfy, practical, and reversible dungarees, with a festive side and an everyday side. Who wouldn't love them? 
What sewing plans have you got for 2019? I expect some usual selfish makes in 2019 (hooray for no longer being constrained by the pregnancy wardrobe), plus even more selfless sewing. I mean, look at this little face... How can I resist? 


  1. That's so cute! Good call on the pattern for hiding stains. I've never seen shoulder zippers for nursing before, but it's such a good idea!

    1. Thank you kindly ;) Yes, I'm still in disbelief as to how many outfit changes we both need per day! Fabrics with again hiding qualities are my new friends.

  2. I am catching up on your blog Alice. Congrats on the baby. Freya is so cute. I love the dungarees. I am getting the pattern!

    1. Thank you so much! I remember hopping over to your blog to check out your maternity projects for inspiration! Congratulations on your baby, too! Hope all is well with you and your family!
