On the weekend before Maggie was born, I was inspired to sew a few more pairs of baby pants (I was also inspired to scrub the exterior of our dishwasher - nesting is intense!). Of course, I didn't get a chance to blog about these before Maggie surprised everyone by arriving on the scene two weeks early.
From left to right, these are Knit Newborn Pants, Rae's Basic Newborn Pants (complete with adorable, useless pockets), and a pair of shorts and a pair of pants made from Rae's Big Butt Baby Pants pattern. Of course, it's the backside of the Big Butt Baby Pants that really steal the show.
Now that Maggie is here, you can see what Rae's Basic Newborn Pants look like on my teeny little peanut.
She is barely 7 pounds now, and even "newborn" sized clothing is
pretty roomy on her. Rae's Newborn Pants are no exception - they are
pretty baggy! Same goes for the Knit Newborn Pants I made for her. They are a couple of inches too long. So all of my mama-mades are too big for this little mouse!
Intellectually, I know that Maggie won't be this tiny for very long. But my emotional side is telling me to make this teeny little girl some pants that will fit her right now! If I could just get a break between feedings, etc., to do a little sewing ...
(For those of you following our breastfeeding adventures, Maggie got her tongue-tie clipped on Wednesday, and thankfully, things seem to be much improved already. Now I just need to fatten this little girl up a bit!)
