Like I wrote in my previous post, I bought multiple of Finch fabrics. I also bought 30 cm of the cactus print at Stoffenelf. Due to the fact that my youngest was passed over on the shirt I planned from the girl fabrics, I decided to use the cactus (which I had planned for my son) for her.
The leggings are made from the free Emma and Mona
pattern and the shirt/tunic started out with the free Janneke pattern. I
forwent the pleated front for just a little flare (more the amount of
fabric didn't allow). The sleeves are from a onesie pattern I used
earlier as well. For this outfit I didn't cut any new paper pattern
The contrasting yellow is again from the shirt I
confiscated from my husband. This time I also reused the ribbing. To
avoid overlapping lock stitches at the centre back, I started sewing on
the ribbing on the shoulder. This resulted in an off centre back seam of
the ribbing, I still have enough to practice. I added small empty
piping to both the front and back. I finished my seams with yellow
double needle stitching.
I have two cactuses left, I
considered making an application for the shirt, but I feared this would
have been too much. I have just stored them for later use. All our kids have a favorite plush animal, my little one loves this bunny and only let go when I gave her the flowers. Multiple flowers, because one was not interesting enough, although throwing it down was a fun game.
I love to
