As I mentioned I like to sew without breaking the bank, if I don't have too. I hope to feature outfits I've made or refashioned that didn't cost me too much. I finished an outfit for Carolin (2 and a bit) today which started with this
I bought it at the thrift store for 50 cents. Cute, but lacking personality. Add a metre of this beautiful striped cotton-lycra knit from my stash (originally from Fabricland for a whopping $3) and we have this
It's a little big, but she'll grow into it. (Notice the rolled up sleeves!) The shirt is Burda 9614 and the leggings are Burda 9615. I love Burda patterns. They almost always fit well and are easy to make. One thing about the shirt though. When I tried it on it didn't fit over her head. She must have a big head, but I'll be careful when making this pattern again to make it a tad bigger around the neck. I just serged around the neck again to make it wider, then did the topstitching again.
A fun project. We'll have to wait a bit for the cooler weather to wear it. I can wait.
