sharing my passion for classic and heirloom sewing

The other big difference was I introduced a "crotch tab" to be able to close the crotch with SnapSetter snaps instead of closing the crotch with a French seam as the pattern suggests. Sorry Children's Corner, I love you, but that is so not friendly for diaper-changes.  

I made matching bloomers (they are included in the Frannie Baby pattern). But I made these completely differently than the pattern directs.

The back is closed with a single mother of pearl button and handmade button loop

Children's Corner Frannie Baby is so cute it hurts. You'll want to eat your sweet baby in this darling number. And it is super easy to sew -- great project for a beginner. 

I used this adorable cherry print fabric along with the matching picot bias tape edging and box pleat trim

One difference was using this bias tape as a casing for the elastic around the legs. The pattern calls to zigzag over the elastic instead.  I thought using bias tape was a cleaner finish, and it also eliminates elastic from touching your baby's soft skin.
