While my friends didn't all get married in rapid succession (sparing me a summer of 7-8 weddings, thank goodness), they are all having babies so close together it's overwhelming for one who likes to make baby gifts.  My poor camera has a back-log of the outfits for four babies born November- March.  Here are 3 outfits I recently finished and gifted:

For Dina Muriel, a pleated jumper out of a scrap of mini houndstooth check:

A potato-stamped ladybug onesie:

And a matching taggie:


For Grant William, a pair of cargo pants in rubber ducky print:


For Elizabeth Olive, a reversible wrap jumper in a dragon print.  I originally bought this fabric years ago, intending to make myself a wrap skirt, but it never happened.  Very cute as a jumper, though, eh? Here's the front:

Reversed:

And the back, 'cos I love me some Wonder Under:

I also made a matching taggie:



Both jumper patterns are vintage.  The dragon one is Simplicity 8420 from 1969, and the plaid pleated one is Simplicity 6362 from 1983.  The cargo pants are from New Look 6175.  I LOVE this pattern.  It has a jumper, jacket, pants, and overalls, and is great for easy baby outfits.  I believe it's recently gone out of print, but I'm sure you can find it online.
