Now that the weather clearly demands long sleeves and that my middle daughter's closet (fortunately) doesn't harbour many hand made long sleeved item that she still fits, I did a quick refashion. As you know, I choose to be lazy if possible, so I took my recently drawn Billie pattern and used it to draw a dress. The bottom hem and width gave me clear boundary conditions. If the garment is really a dress or rather a tunic is up for debate, but in winter, when kids are wearing leggings I think it doesn't really matter.
As I mentioned here, I am in the process of making the "perfect"pair of leggings for my middle daughter. She has a very sensitive skin and I experienced that tights make her legs very itchy. My stash contains many hidden treasures and this super soft Birch is one of them. I bought it with the intention of some baby gift sewing, but when it coincidentally ended up next to the brown dress, I saw a match made in heaven. I can not explain exactly why, but the combination makes me very happy. I presume it is because of the green/brown/yellow combo in both garments.
This pair of leggings is actually the second pair, based on the La Maison Victor child leggings (I write "based" because I changed a lot of the characteristics based on some well fitting leggings from my daughter's closet). The first version didn't make it to the blog yet, because I couldn't pair it with anything. I originally sewed this dress to accompany the first pair of legging, but that combination looked more like a match from hell. What had I been thinking? Thank god fabric stashes!
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
