Burnside Bibs - June and Lu Fabrics

I saw on a RTW site floral bibs and I just kept thinking about them.  The more I thought the more I needed them and so I bought fabric and made myself a pair of floral bibs.

I went with Sew House Seven's Burnside Bibs, which I have made twice before.  I just love this pattern, the style is so fun and the construction is amazing.  In February, June and Lu had a sale so I purchased this See You at Six Cotton Gabardine Fabric.  The floral seemed the right scale for the bibs I wanted.  I did wash and dry this fabric twice before I started on this project.  So fabric in February and now it is May and I got them made.  On Instagram stories, I asked for help on the length, long or cropped.  Cropped won by quite a bit and that was the way I thought I would do it.  Then I started to think about it, why not long then I can always crop them.  I am so happy with this decision, it just seems right for the fabric.

If you have not tried this pattern, you should.  It is amazing, great fit, incredible instructions and just fun.  I love sewing them up and really they go pretty quickly.  I like to do them it sections, one night the bib part, the ties and belt loops, then pants/zipper.  

Since I received the fabric, I thought the flowers looked a bit blue, a very pale blue.  My thought was to get a light blue fabric to make a t-shirt and bring out that blue.  Well, the exact fabric came in the mail.  I have a subscription to the Indie Stitch box and this month had the perfect ribbed light blue fabric.  The pattern wasn't one I wanted to make, so the fabric is now a True Bias Rio Ringer Tee and the perfect compliment for the Burnside Bibs 

This photo really shows the blue of the shirt

I put this on yesterday to get pictures and Mike just kept saying how cute I looked and how much he liked these.  I said I have made these bibs twice before and he said, I know, I like all of them.

Junior likes them, too!  LOL
