Today we get to share a very cute and versatile pattern from the Project Lounge Library collection. This is one of those wardrobe staples…and I guess we’re said that about almost every pattern in the collection so far! But that was the design of this entire collection…function and comfort. This week we’re going to focus on the patterns designed by Jenn of Jennuine Designs for the Project Lounge Library collection, starting with the Biography Bomigan.
Special thanks to Kalli June Photography for the beautiful photography of my kids in this post.
We sewed up 2 Biography Bomigans, one is a nod to the cardigan side of the design, and the other closer to the bomber side of the design. Both are equally fun! Let’s start with the one closer to the bomber side. For our Never Leaving Neverland “story” we sewed up the snuggliest Biography Bomigan ever!
This fabric is Shannon Premier Minky Cuddle Deer to Me in Graphite, (affiliate link) and it’s SO COZY! Whenever Baby is wearing this jacket, we just cuddle and cuddle him! And yes, that happens quite often! 😉 He’s the jolliest baby, always cuddled and tended to.
The Biography Bomigan pattern can be sewn in 16 sizes from newborn to 14. We sewed a size 2T for baby. The pattern can be made with snaps or a zipper. This minky version utilizes the snap version. The Biography Bomigan has raglan sleeves, and a sweet little curved back yoke. Pockets and elbow patches are optional, and so cute! The pattern is fully illustrated with drawn instructions and is quite thorough in the instructions. We were able to make both of these sweet patterns very simply.
The collar, cuffs, elbow patches and waistband are made from a heavyweight ribbed knit, leftover from this project. We had to guesstimate the length of them because the fabric was so stretch, but nevertheless, it was worth it to have that pop of color on this Bomigan.
The other Biography Bomigan we sewed was for our Ode to Eric Carle story. This one is actually an up cycled sweater! We decided it was MUCH more cost effective to buy a bunch of white clothes and sheets to make this Ode to Eric Carle. We kept the existing zipper, cuffs and waistband, making this a super fast and easy sew! (We had to shorten the zipper, but the pattern easily demonstrates how to do that. We also added faux leather elbow patches! This one is such a sweet little layering piece, and definitely leans to the cardigan side of the pattern inspiration. And yes, Baby gets tons of squishes and hugs when he wears this version of the Biography Bomigan too! I mean…come on! Can you even handle that cuteness?
