I haven't sewn a ton over the past few months. And when I sewed, I didn't necessarily blog. But, I think I may be getting back on track!
I made a quick outfit for Julia on Saturday. Previously, just about two years ago, I made these shorts:
So, I used some similar fleece and made this outfit:
These shorts are a size 5 straight up. I may make the next pair a bit shorter - they are kind of an awkward length. The previous ones were a size 4 and I think she still could wear a size 4. The pattern is the free Sunny Days Shorts from Oliver + S. I added front pockets and back pockets. Gotta have pockets.
The top is another Oliver + S pattern - the School Bus T-Shirt. This is a size 4 with about 5 inches added to the length. The fabric is hideous to work with. It is that kind of burn-out fabric which my daughter loves. Unfortunately, it's a pain in the butt to work with - it curled like nobody's business. The neck band application was atrocious so I went to the iron to give it a blast of steam. Mistake. Burnt a hole in it, hence, the lovely bow at the neckline. I was actually going to put it straight in the trash, but Julia really liked it, so we'll see what happens....I have more of the hideous fabric - a lot more.
Next up, a Mother's Day gift.....
