Well you knew I couldn’t just stop at one once I’d been hooked onto the Bimaa train, didn’t you? Here’s another one for Oliver made from some cotton jersey I got from the Fabric Fairy (using a gift card I got from a Sew, Mama, Sew contest).
Since this jersey was similar in stretchiness (or lack thereof) to the triangle fabric from Bimaa 1, I sewed up a 4T this time and I love the fit throughout the body. The hood is a wee bit big- we think he kinda looks like a jedi knight with it pulled up. It doesn’t bother O at all though- in fact, he cried when I tried to take his hood off for a few pictures.
If When I make another one, I will probably still make the 4T size but do a 3T in the hood. The hood lining fabric is from an old knit dress of mine that was in the upcycle bin.
O was up from his nap when I was putting the finishing touches to his hoodie, and it was so cute because he kept asking if I were done, so he could put it on and go play in the snow. 🙂 He’s getting the hang of this blogger child thing…and the fact that photoshoots normally come with some sort of bribery. Lol. Ok, you northerners don’t laugh at our pitiful amount of snow on the ground. He doesn’t know any better!
Once again, major photo props to the husband. So glad I have him around to get good pictures for me. 🙂
I’ve loved your red triangles this week, and then I love this bimaa all sized up! It is so cute, I love the fit, and I think oversized hoods just add to the adorable factor. So cute!
I love this! Just saw your PJs on the KCW and wanted to head over here to take another look. I just made a bimaa for the daughter and loved the slender cut, but this looks great sized up a bit too. I’ll have to keep that in mind when my little guy gets a bit older.
Thanks for coming over! I am loving everyone’s variations of the bimaas. Seems like this KCW pattern of choice!

Lovely pattern, very nicely put together – the fabric choice, neatly stitched, the pattern, model and of course your photography. Love it.
Thank you so much!
Oh my goodness, I love this so so much!! I’m not sure how I missed it during KCW!! Seriously, my favorite Bimaa ever…. I may have to copy 😉
Copy away! 🙂 Thanks so much. I’m flattered. I do think it’s my favorite piece of clothing to-date as well.
