I was eager to start a new sunsuit since the last one I made turned out so cute. This one is Simplicity’s pattern 2892 infant toddler playsuit, bolero, and bonnet. I find this pattern so attractive because it is one piece that folds like an old-fashioned diaper and buttons to a bib.
I decided to use soft pink featherwhale corduroy. I love featherwhale or sometimes called fine whale because the ribbing is smaller and thus the nap of the material is thinner, lightweight, and more appropriate for small children. I used a white crochet trim around the whole piece finished with pearl bear buttons. Hidden seams throughout. I’m finishing up the matching bonnet.
Since this was a 1950 pattern, it was simple to work. All pieces marked and printed instructions that take you through step by step. What I love about post 1950 patterns is that they use ELASTIC! Anything pre this date will call for a continuous lap that is fitted so exact that there is no room for error.
