Simplicity 9338 Baby Jiffy Suit


It is fair to say most dressmakers have a pile of UFOs (unfinished objects) I do have my fair share and it is not because of getting bored or stuck, it is usually work or life matters that stall the end of the project!

I said in my last post I wanted to crack on with this and I am glad I have. It is very quick and the perfect pattern for a novice or for a more experienced dressmaker to make quickly and easily. The most tricky part was making the leg casings and that was it!

I don't usually make things for my children from the 1970s but this one caught my eye on Facebook and a couple more from the same era since.


The rainbow shark fabric is Alexander Henry and I hadn't seen before I spotted it on Fondant Fabrics . It is a fantastic site for designer fabrics and they have a few really unusual ones including gorgeous high detail bird prints. 



I loved how it turned out. I decided to also have a try at the girls version for the shop and another boys one too in a more classic print. As I was destashing I lined it in a cream coloured cotton, that I already had, rather than buying another colour. For the next time I will match the colours better


I love it and think this one should be dug out from the Simplicity archive for a reprint!

  2. Can you share the pattern pls?
    If not, can I buy 1 from you that you made?
    I want to make these for my local hospital's NICU.
    They need easy outfits for those little loves with all those wires.
    Thank you
