Sewing for twins!

May 4, 2021

A friend of mine brought two beautiful babies into the world in 2020. The various lockdowns and tiers and restrictions meant that, sadly, we didn’t get to see much of them, but I was able to at least crack out some mix and match twin-clothes for them for Christmas. The first set I want to show you was made with Burda 9372, and two different colourways of Christmas fabric from Minerva.

I chose the bibbed trousers for both babies so that either twin could wear either garment (they are boy and girl twins). I was spoilt for choice with Christmas-themed fabric to choose from, but really happy with my final choice. I especially like how the design on each fabric is perpendicular to the other.

My favourite view of these though is the back view. I just love the crossover straps, the metal buttons, and patch pockets on the bum! So cute! I can just imagine the twins getting up to all sorts of mischief in these!

I think these may have been the only Christmas sewing I did in 2020. Covid definitely killed off my time to sew and my desire to sew!

As I wasn’t able to get the babies measurements or try them on, I did a couple of buttonhole fastenings on the straps in case the fit needed adjusting. I also made mum and dad a set of coordinating face coverings, just for that extra special Covid-safe vibe!

I’d definitely recommend this pattern. It was easy to sew and is really cute!
