This week is also produce based...but with an additional couple of Cs:
C is for Carrot and Corduroy (kind of) and Colossal.
"Kind of" Corduroy because I'm not sure this outer fabric is technically corduroy - or if it's just corduroy-ish. And Colossal because...well...you'll see in a second. It was the only C word I could think of the that means "big" or "large" or "oversized". But the carrots are totally legit...all over the lining and a little bonus embroidery, too.
The pattern is The Lucy Tunic by Shwin & Shwin. There was no measurement guide on the pattern which is unfortunate for obvious reasons. I cut the size two because the next option down was 12 months and I figured there's no way my 23 month old would fit a 12 month sized garment. Hmmmm. Hopefully she'll have grown into it by spring...it's a more appropriate carrot garment season anyway.
I didn't make it reversible because I just didn't see myself ever putting it on her carrot side out. I did add some extra carrot lining to the pocket, though. and I love that a little orange and green peaks out every now and again.
You may (or may not) notice that the carrot embroidery pictured at the top isn't in the modeled shots. It was a last minute addition and I'm happy I took a few minutes and added it.
And since a book worked so well for us during our last shoot, I had on a hand an attractive (and small!) Peter Rabbit book - appropriate, right? Well, she wanted nothing to do with it. I should learn to trust her, though. Her choice was equally as appropriate, I think.
C is for Clifford and The Big Egg Hunt.
