Oliver + S Lullaby Layette

A Sweet Pea is on the way so that means small sewing. Delish! No issues with fit means high satisfaction in my book. First up is this wee piece of gorgeousness.

Made from a cotton so light one suspects it was intended for someone delicate in frame and nature, it should be perfect for keeping baby skin protected from the harsh sun. It is still to have fastenings on the front placket but I am searching for just the thing. As no one is sure whether Sweet Pea will be a he or a she, I will be making up a second version from an equally gauzy, yet slightly more masculine, fabric.

In reflection, as I suspect that this post is suggestive of Sweet Pea joining our family, please be assured that is simply and thankfully not the case. Sweet Pea belongs to a new but very dear friend 🙂

Until next time, chat quietly amongst yourselves. Or with me if the desire so strikes.
