I had so much fun sewing up this outfit for Carolin. She loves it and so do I. I do like bright colours though...
Leggings are copied from some Old Navy leggings I took apart. The shirt is from a Burda pattern with some changes. I did not use ribbing on neck, but rather just surged the neck, folded it over and stitched with a straight stitch. It is stretchy enough to get over her head without breaking so I'm happy.
I also wanted to have a bit of gathering or pleats on the shoulder. I sort of used this tutorial from Made by Rae but I didn't add 2 inches to the whole length of the sleeve. I added 2 inches to the top portion of the sleeve and tapered it back to the original sleeve width at the wrist.
Appliqued a heart with some rib knit. It's a very happy heart don't you think?
Love, love, love the trim on the skirt! I've been looking for the perfect project for it and I love it!
Fabric for the shirt and leggings was a knit I picked up at Fabricland quite some time ago. They very rarely have nice knits but I just came across this one. It is thick and sturdy and has a bit of lycra in it. I just wish they had nice printed knits. With polka dots and such.
And the sun popped out for a little photo shoot. I'm not much of a photographer, but the sun sure does lighten things up!
Have a good day!
