Onesie Dress {TGIFF}

DSC_0002
With all the machine tryouts I have been doing as part of my Sewing Machine Adultery series I've decided to do some projects that will help me decide what features I need in a machine.  With three little girls I have wanted to start experimenting with garment creation...and specifically clothes involving knit fabrics.  
Using my Bernina Activa 130, this project required my Overlock Presser Foot, my Overlock Stitch, my free arm, and a needle for stretchy fabrics.

I am glad to report that it was stupidly simple to do.  I am so thrilled with myself for rediscovering and using these features of my Bernina Activa 130 after all of these years!
Looks like someone enjoys the results at least!  Seriously - why does she want to walk so badly?  What is wrong with crawling???

Linking up!

lovely dress, and so practical, too with the onesie bottom :) garmet sewing scares the pants off me - my few & feeble attempts have been less than stellar

Way a cutie! I always joked that I tied weights to their ankles to stop them walking ;) why do they have to grow up so fast? We have our first wobbly tooth tonight and it feels like yesterday he was in onesies!
