Two Pat-a-Cake Rompers and One Shirt Hack

I used the free 6 month size pattern found here to make these cute little rompers for our littlest guy.  You can purchase all sizes using this affiliate link to Peek-A-Boo Patterns. It was a little bit tricky, first time I'd ever done a collar or snap placket, but the instructions were exactly what I needed to complete the project! I highly recommend Amy's patterns!

Before you ask me how I have time to sew for the fourth child, I would like to explain that these three items have taken me about four or more weeks to complete. I also have been getting up at 5:30 am to feed the little guy and been unable to go back to sleep again. So I can get up and sew. 

 This one is my favorite. I lengthened it a bit, added 1" to the body of all patterns. I did have a little bit of a hard time with it since I accidentally cut two left fronts. I finally figured out the problem, ripped out the extra left side, had enough fabric to make a right side, and problem was solved. 

I really love KAM snaps, which I used for these instead of buttons or metal snaps. She doesn't actually show where to place the snaps on the pattern, but her photos show four snaps on the front placket. (And then four for the crotch snaps.) 

The little guy actually wore this one for his baptism!

The shirt was a tad bit giant when I made it. He's awfully skinny for six months (we're into the 12% for weight, though, he started out in the <1 a="">) but he's growing at a wonderfully appropriate rate and has been super healthy for being a few weeks early and a PPROM baby. 
I guess I never really finished his story on the blog, but know that he is super sweet, healthy and extremely cute. Everyone loves him (it's hard to fight with a baby, so he's one of the most popular brothers) and I just can't say enough how much we're all enjoying him. He is rolling to both sides and can prop sit (he's only 5 months corrected age!) He's in physical therapy for torticollis. This has caused him to have a flat spot on the right side of his head, his ears and temples are uneven, and he's scheduled to get a helmet in a  few days. 

He also wore the other cute pantsoutfits and booties I made a long time ago, before he was born! 

If you purchase from Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop using my affiliate link, I'll get a small credit to use on more patterns, which I would love!
