"Jeffery" is an old standard of Children's Corner patterns. I am not sure if it is still in print or not. I still have it in my stash though I haven't made one in a long, long time. It used to be my go-to for baby boy gifts. It is a classic style.
So classic that here is Baby Hank wearing the Jeffery I made for my Godson, 21 years ago. It is smocked with Ellen McCarn's Stick Horse. The romper is made using Imperial poly/cotton microcheck, lined with white Imperial batiste. All still available today.
Oh, how far we've come. That yoke could sure have used some German interfacing. I also have a tendency to use smaller piping now. I remember being so proud of stitching on the navy blue buttons with red thread. I thought I had hit the pinnacle of design choices. It didn't take much to tickle me. All that aside, our prince is a cutie in a vintage treasure.
Thank you, faithful reader, for all of the emails inquiring about the babies' transition abroad. I think they are all finally settling in. Princess has turned into a full fledged toddler with all of the fun and challenges that brings. Baby Hank has taken the change in stride. Mommy says he is growing like a weed and the dog, aka Car-car, is lapping up the fenced in yard. She can hardly get him to come inside. Lastly, Mom and Dad have finally recovered from a wicked case of jet lag.
My shoulder is slowly getting there. It has three weeks to be "Done". I've got places to go.
