The fabric is a "vintage" gingham...from the curtains that hung in my nursery as a newborn!
I made the bias tape from some fabric that I picked up at an estate sale a couple of years ago. It's pretty thin/sheer and not the easiest to work with, but I love the combo. Pattern mixing is a weak point of mine so this was outside my comfort zone a bit - I'm so glad I went for it.
The buttons are also vintage - inherited from one of my grandmothers or great-grandmothers or possibly my husband's grandmother. Old and collected. That's my button stash.
I can't say 21 months is my favorite modeling age, but we're working on it. Or I'm working on it.
The back is obviously the main attraction, though, anyway.
Jeans blogged here. I love how she's grown into them! Definitely making more this fall - with a little higher rise in the back, of course. Crack is whack. I actually made her a pair of shorts to go with this top - they matched the teal in the trim - but they looked HORRIBLE on her/with it. I'm okay with that - two big wins and one little loss - no big deal.
Yeah Kids Clothes Week!
