Here are a couple of things I’ve sewn for my little girl, she seems to be outgrowing all of her clothes at the same time! I’ve planned lots and lots of things and the latest Ottobre magazine (3/2015) is full of beautiful clothes to make.
Amidst this verrrry long list, I’ve chosen a little skirt with rabbits in appliqué and a hat. We’re going to have a heat wave in the next few days, so it’s perfect timing! The skirt and the hat are made with the same two fabrics, coming from Catherine (merci !), all very pink: a flowery print in cotton and a very bright pink in linen. The last one has been used for the inside of the hat.
Nothing very complex here, stitching the appliqué took ages but it was rather easy. This skirt is just a rectangle with shirring, so the construction itself is not a problem.
To go with this skirt and to celebrate the delayed arrival of my latest issue of the Ottobre magazine, I’ve sewn a little hat from this issue. I’ve never made anything so quickly after receiving my subscription! Received yesterday and during nap time today, I traced, cut and sewed this cute little hat. It will be perfect for the nursery tomorrow.
As the weather was rather good this afternoon, I managed to snatch a couple of pictures of my little model:
- The skirt
pattern : Ottobre 4/2013 number 5, size 86 – fabric : cotton print and solid colour linen, all from Catherine’s stash – modifications: none
- The hat
pattern : Ottobre 3/2015 number 13 “Forget-me-not”, size 50 cm – fabric : cotton print and solid colour linen, all from Catherine’s stash – modifications: none
See you soon!
