After the news of the Great British Sewing Bee’s return last week, we thought that might have been enough excitement for a while. And then along came the Royal Baby! Kate and Will welcomed their third child on St George’s Day, a baby boy. The royal couple are still keeping us guessing his name, so in the meantime we thought we’d share our favourite baby outfits, inspired by the new arrival!
New Look 6970
A cute baby romper, this pattern is the perfect outfit for a little one to explore and play in. This can be made into shorts, or a dress and knickers.
The royals love vintage childrenswear, so if you’d love to stitch up something similar, Simplicity 1600 is the one for you! Based on a Simplicity archive pattern, this makes a ruffled romper and bonnet.
Merbabies ahoy! Seriously cute baby accessories such as this swaddle sack make a unique gift.
Not forgetting Mum!
Who could overlook Kate’s red Jenny Packham dress? If you want to get the look, why not try Simplicity 1609 – complete with vintage-inspired white collar.
