Basquiat Onesie--front

Pattern: Kwik Sew 2433 (Baby Rompers and Jumpsuits)

 

Size: M (3-6 months)

 

Fabric: I made the body from a repurposed 100% cotton jersey silkscreened T-shirt by Brooklyn Industries. It used to be one of Masheka's favorite Ts until it shrunk in the wash to be too short for him. The image is of the late artist Jean-Michel Basquiat in boxing gloves.

 

The sleeves were a lighter-weight purple cotton lycra knit leftover from various other projects. And the purple foldover elastic (FOE) was from Sewzanne's (online fabric store specializing in children's fabrics and patterns).

 

And yes, I still need to attach the snaps but I was so excited to make this in just a few hours I had to post right away!
