baby blog tour




I got the pleasure of testing the Ainsley & Aiden Baby Suite I patterns and what a treat it was. Not only are the patterns versatile but I got to sew for this boy. As the youngest boy of three he has hand-me-downs for days but its fun to sew something brand new. I went the route of creating basics that will mix and match but you could also create some unique pieces with this pattern set. 

My favorite? The bodysuit!  The length is perfect, the snap area long enough to cover even a cloth diaper bum, and the envelope neck is a great place to add fun detail. I've made a few different bodysuit patterns in the past but this one was right in many ways. The instructions are clear and include the option to use a regular sewing machine over a serger. The sizing was spot on and covers the entire baby range (premie-12M).  The way that Kim finishes the binding is genius, which reduces bulk but still produces a professional outcome.  Raleigh has worn this orange one I made for him more than anything else in the last weeks. 

The pattern set is well written and one that I will use many times over. 
Have even made a couple more tees already that I hope to blog soon.
Can't thank Kim enough for allowing me to test.

Head over to Stitchwerx to get yours today!
