I thought I'd make Carolin a cute shirt and shorts outfit using a dress pattern and only fabric I had on hand.
This is Take 1. I underestimated how long it should be and the top came out too short. And I find it too full in the 'dress' part.
Below are some photos of Take 2.
You can see that the shorts are way to big for her. I used a Size 2 and took it in 3inches and they are still way too big. Lesson for next time - measure first.
I added some inches to the shirt. I initially was going to add another tier but I didn't have enough fabric to do so. I was so tempted to buy some more fabric and just turn it into a dress, but I wasn't going to spend any money on it. Besides she has so many dresses already. I used one of my embroidery stitches on the seam.
So, they don't all work out so well. But that's all part of it and I'm always learning.
She did wear the top with a long-sleeved t-shirt under it to Bible Study this week. I even got a few compliments on it.
Pattern for top: Burda 9702
