Simplicity easy-to-sew #5720 »
Instructionsit wasn't too hard to put together. I haven't put zippers into a lot of items, so this was the most difficult part of the pattern for me. If your experienced at sewing zippers in, you won't have any problems at all with this pattern. fleece is stretchy, which makes it go together very easy.
Type of item: Costume
Style: Cute, Holiday
What was your inspiration?
Mackenzie is my nephew & his wife's 1st. child, so when he told me they were all going to dress up for halloween this year as different candies, he asked me if I could make her a candy corn costume. I thought it shouldn't be too difficult to make one. This pattern has pieces to make a baby bunting or play suits in xxs,xs,s. I did alter this pattern a little. I cut the point off the hat so it would look more like the top of a candy corn, and added the chin strap so it would stay on. Also I flared out the bottom of the bunting, so it would look more like candy corn.
What are you most proud of?
That I finished it and it fit her pretty good.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just take your time and read the instructions through a couple of times before cutting any fabric.
