Isabelle Baby Set
Brand Felicity Sewing Patterns
The Isabelle Baby Set is a lovely little outfit with a tabbard style top and matching bloomers or long pants. It can be adapted to all seasons. There are three versions included in the pattern and sewing tutorial.
DESCRIPTION: The top is a tabard style with open sides held together with bow ties. The back yoke is open and has a button and loop closure. It can be trimmed with either lace or bias binding. The bloomers are pull-on with an elastic waist and leg openings. A long pant option is also included. The tutorial shows how to make the bias binding. There are 3 tutorials to show how to sew each version of the pattern but the same basic construction applies to all versions.
EXPERIENCE: Advanced beginner; suitable for the novice seamstress with some experience: only plain sewing skills required; Careful attention to correct seam allowances and neatness is important. Follow the sewing tutorial closely. If you do not have a serger /overlocker use a zigzag or similar stitch on your machine to finish the edges of the seams.
FABRIC: Cotton voile, lawn, homespun, poplin or similar fabrics; also light weight corduroy or velveteen. The Isabelle can be made in one fabric print or in a combination of 2 fabrics. To avoid shrinkage it is advisable to launder cotton fabrics before using.
SIZES: 3m, 6m, 9m, 12m, 2t, 3t, 4t, to fit children 3 months to 4 years. Always check the size chart before you start; chest and height measurements are the best guide for selecting the correct size for your child. The size chart gives body dimensions only; the pattern has ease added.
PDF SEWING PATTERN: To print you need an ordinary desk top printer. The pattern prints on A4 [210x297mm] or 8.1/4”x11.5/8” plain paper.

The pattern file includes a very detailed sewing tutorial with step by step photos. The computer made digital pattern comes as a color coded, full size range nest with seam allowances included. Instructions for printing and assembling the pattern are included. All seam allowances and cutting instructions are marked on the pattern pieces.
