This is a digital pattern. The Snugly Kid is a loosely cut basic pattern for sizes 2 - 15 (US) with a big cosy collar and hood, perfect for warming up cold faces.
The pattern is divided into two basics: Jumper and dress. The jumper can be cut in normal length or extra-long. The longer design covers the bottom and is therefore comfortable when playing around the floor; it will keep the backside warm and cosy.
The dress is on a separate sheet and is flared from the waist down. Here you also have two options, tunic and dress. The tunic can be finished with a band around the hem to create a cheeky bubble skirt effect. The dress is princess like cut around knee length and the tunic reaches the thighs, so nothing constrains the rollick.
There are also three different pockets to choose from: kangaroo pocket, two little patch pockets and side pockets (only for the jumper). The hem of the dress can also be cut with a separate facing and sleeve patches will give this garment the perfect rascal look. The hood is slightly wrap around and is fastened on the side with buttons or poppers. KAMsnaps work very well for this garment. This cut is designed for stretchy fabrics, fleece jersey is also possible. Simple jersey is possible as well; the collar will just not drape as well and will be less cosy to wear.
The different sewing steps are well illustrated and in the introduction are plenty of tips for beginners. This pattern is well suited also for beginners. We have brought this pattern to one of our beginners classes and the results were great throughout. The instructions are divided into separate sections to make it easier to skip the section that is not needed for the specific design options.
