It turned out a little longer than I had anticipated, but is just roomy enough up top and in the sleeves that she won't grow out of it for quite a while.
Lisi Loo's favorite shape is the star - so you can imagine her excitement when I pointed them out all over her new shirt (I should have gotten a close-up of the fabric - they dots are actually dark gray stars). She then showed them off to all her dolls in the immediate vicinity. Braggart.
This fabric is relatively thin, so I wasn't sure how I'd like the cowl but turns out I love it! And she does, too, as she thinks it a scarf, like Mommy's. Close enough kid.
I'm feeling really good about getting back in the sewing saddle. I actually made two more tops the same day that I'll post as I get pictures. That's part of my new strategy...sew a lot for a day or two, then step away for a week or two and get pictures as the new things are worked into regular wardrobe rotation. Hopefully letting myself be obsessed for a day or two at a time will keep me from letting it take over all the time. Until KCW starts, anyway. ha! Wish me luck!
This turned out absolutely adorable! It looks so comfy, I want one for me ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks! I feel that way about a lot of her clothes. I think I must be making my dream wardrobe in miniature or something. It'll be a sad day when she no longer appreciates my taste!Delete
adorable-both the top and your daughter! what great fabric to have little grey stars! i can see why she loves it so:)ReplyDelete
Ooh! I love stars, too. Super comfy top (well, probably.).ReplyDelete
