Four years ago today Miss B joined (and completed!) our little family. Happy 4th birthday to our dear sweet girl.
This morning Miss B unwrapped a dress, skirt and some leggings. They weren’t intended to be an outfit, but they are all being worn at once today… like you do when you are four!
Pattern: Oliver + S’s Sunday Brunch Skirt
Fabric: Stenzo pinwale cord purchased online last year from Earthgirl Fabrics. I was using leftovers from a pre-blogging project, so the waistband is in another fabric – pale pink cord with light green spots. Bea approved the pattern and fabric selection before I commenced work.
Pattern: Girls leggings from K3935
Fabric: Cotton/Spandex Hearts in Multi. I have to confess I was really disappointed with this fabric. I brought a three prints from Robert Kaufman’s Remix Knits Collection and two of the three fabrics are printed off grain. I had intended to make t-shirts, but decided that leggings would hide the grain issue better.
The dress is based on my favourite long sleeved t-shirt pattern, which I shortened and added added a gathered skirt. I’m not sure if you can see in the photos, but the gathering part is actually top-stitched to the shortened t-shirt. If anyone is interested, I would be happy to attempt a little tutorial.
Pattern: My own, but based on Ottobre Design – Creative Workshop 301 – The Best T-Shirts : View A (Close Fitting Design) with a gathered skirt top-stitched to the shortened top.
Fabric: Super soft cotton/lycra from Alannah Hill Outlet
