Sylva onesie by Sofilantjes

Aren’t onesies just the cutest piece of clothing? And they wear them constantly! I love to put our youngest in new, soft, original onesies. Do you remember the Sylva t-shirt by Sofilantjes*? I sewed one more than a year ago. Now there is a Sylva Onesie (Nederlands patroon), with the same neckline!

The Sylva is characterised by the v-neck line on the front and the back of the onesie. The onesie comes in sizes NB to 86 and fits perfectly over cloth diapers as you can see in the photos. The onesie fits nicely around the legs and does not show the diaper (even though you might want to show the cute designs off the cloth diapers 😉). I sewed the short sleeves, but the pattern also comes with long sleeves, which is next on my sewing list.

Onesies are usually pretty quick sews and great baby gifts. The same goes for this onesie, you just need to pay attention when sewing the binding for the neck, and the result is so cute! And perfect for colour blocking. Of course I used three different fabrics for this onesie (just like I did for the t-shirt). But you can also use the same fabric for the sleeves.


Fabric: the flower fabric was a gift during our sewing weekend. The uni coloured fabric (orange, yellow and pink) comes from my stash.
