Easter romper

Here is my sketch of what I wanted to make Malcolm for Easter. I ordered a McCall's pattern online and luckily it came in the mail on Friday. Not much time, but just enough. I had to make some adjustments to the pattern to make it small enough for him and straighten out the tapered leg. It gave me such a thrill to see it come together. Dave sewed on the buttons Sunday morning and Malcolm got to wear his new Easter romper to church. It is perfect for the way he loves to move and grove.

I love the touch of light blue in the fabric and the patches make me especially happy. It turned out just right, so did his little rabbit (thanks Purl Bee for the adorable pattern) no time to make rabbit pants though.

Happy Easter! Chocolate note: I not only devoured my chocolate rabbit, but Malcolm's as well. He's too little for chocolate.
