Enjoy the sun in Solis

The two Solis* projects that I am showing day were sewn in February during our sewing weekend. The Solis is such a quick and fun project so it was the perfect pattern to end such a perfect weekend with.  I sewed them on Sunday morning, just before me and her had to leave. I took the fabrics from home, but both bodice fabrics actually came from her, I received them half a year before on a sewing date.

Our youngest love twirly dresses, so it was a no brainer that she would get a normal Solis. I bought the lift blue fabric as a remnant from Textielstad once. It is a kind of knit fabric with stretch, but it is not your average jersey. It has a 3d effect, and I felt that the flowers could totally pass on for snow flakes. She clearly loves the dress.

Our middle one is still in her, no-dress phase. I am curious if she will continue this phase over the summer. I therefore sewed her a tunic length piece. I simply shorted the skirt part of the Solis. Like I wrote earlier, I sewed these pieces in the last moments of sewing time that I had, and I somehow made a cutting error. They always happen in such moments. Somehow the front and back bodice were not the same length. I solved it by adding a band. This made a very bold fabric choice even bolder. The chest of our two youngest does not differ much, and our youngest actually already worn this tunic as a dress. I hope they will be willing to share their wardrobe in the future as well
