The Stella Jumpsuit from Sofilantjes* has been on my sewing list for a long time. I wanted to sew it since our youngest was born, 2 years ago. This summer I just had to sew it since she will outgrow the sizes soon and I wanted to make a summer Stella with short sleeves.
You must recognise the fabric from these dresses. Yes, I bought it on the bold at Nooteboom and I love it. It a very soft fabric and flows so nice. There is still some left. Now all the girls at home have a garment in this fabric. Our husband is the only one missing out, but he doesn’t like twinning with us unfortunately. Well too bad for him.
The Stella Jumpsuit starts at size 50 (NB) and goes up to size 92 (2Y). I made a 74 chest size with a 86 length. The Stella is the perfect newborn gift but it also works well for toddlers. Those jumpsuits look so cute on them when they walk around. The baggy bum works also very well with cloth diapers. Our daughter is wearing her cloth diaper in her stella.
I specifically like the neckline of the Stella jumpsuit. It has a jacket like neckline and looks so cool on kids. I used transparant kam snaps as closure. I didn’t have a colour that matched the colours on the fabric and since it is already a busy fabric I thought the transparant snaps would work well.
