Hi guys! I’m excited to be part of Thread Faction’s Spring/Summer 2016 blog tour today! I already own and love one of Liz’s patterns (remember these cozy joggers?) so I was excited to sew up a few of her current patterns for little girls.
Juliet’s look here is made up of tank #104 and skirt #106…and I love them both! This is my first time putting binding on a tank like this and, while my skills could use some work, I think it sure turned out cute! And the skirt, with attached shorts underneath is just perfect for active little girls. I hate having to remind my girls to put on an extra pair of shorts to cover those little bums…with these they don’t have to! Plus, the tank pattern offers lots of inspiration for colorblocking which is my absolute FAVE design element.
Kira’s wearing dress #108 and it’s so flirty and darling! In fact I couldn’t decide between making this one, the tank dress (#107) or the romper (#110). They’re all just perfect for hot summer days. My girls are pretty minimalistic when it comes to dressing themselves…while they love to prance around in fancy dressups for play, they stick to the same simple outfits when getting dressed in the mornings. These creations are sure to see lots of wear! (In fact, one wild little curly-haired munchkin reeeeeally wanted to model this dress instead of letting her sister do it, but she wasn’t being very cooperative and got left behind. She might never forgive me for it!)
