We were having the grand kids over for the weekend so I spent ALL day Friday with this pattern.
I am a big fan of patterns with lots of options and this one fits the bill. You get a sweater, two shirt versions, leggings and a skirt. And I made them all.
The cardigan is my favorite but I made it in polka dot instead of the solid. I found this Riley Blake knit online somewhere and if I could remember I would tell you.
Darling grand-daughter proved to be her typical 3-year-old self and had to be sweet talked into even putting this on.
I got the matching t-shirt on her for a short spell. After the photo-shoot I re-serged the
shoulder seams for a better fit.
even realize it called for one. Bad me. I think a zipper in a knit with a neck this large is totally unnecessary.
This is her favorite picture.
The her brother had to get into the act and really hammed it up.
Turns out she REALLY wants a purple skirt and being a good grandma, I will be searching out the right shades of purple to go with that polka-dot purple shirt before their next visit. Like on real models, the skirt has been "fitted" by pinning out the extra inches in the back.
I wasn't done with the pattern. I made the color-blocked shirt and another pair of leggings.
But, they look like pajamas so that is what they are going to be.
AND I did not put in a zipper and there is oodles of head room.
Do you like to sew for kids? Do THEY like what you sew?
