As promised on my last post, today I’m sharing the outfit underneath the Ottobre cardigan. The shirt and culottes are both from the same Japanese book – A Sunny Spot Girls Simple Clothes. I’m smitten to almost every project in the book so you’ll probably see more garments from it in the future.
As usual I went with height and turns out the shirt is a bit wide for M., particularly on the sleeves. No surprise there since I ahem barely looked at the other measurements (lets pretend I didn’t just confess to that… sigh heheh). The patterns are perfect, and even with Japanese instructions sewing went down peacefully.
Both fabrics are from my local shop, great finds again. 😉 The shirt is some lightweight cotton perfect for a shirt; I’m so in love with it, seriously wish I could find more. The culottes are made with some fabric I had left from this project, it’s a dark lightweight denim with a bit of shine but not too much to feel very dressed up.
If you follow me on IG, you probably know that the culottes already have a mend on the back. In fact these photos were taken previously to that mending, hence this post not having back views for you to see. heheh Also it totally shows that the garment was already used and washed before these photos, I always prefer to take photos before washing because everything looks more crisp. But when you decide to sew pretty much all the clothes for your kids, garments can’t really hang around waiting for photos for a long time… 😉
I think she has a rockstar vibe… 😉
The back really shows how I should have sized down on width… Gahh if only you knew how much I dislike fitting alterations… I guess if you follow the stuff I make, you already know that, Ha! 😉 I have to program my brain for couture and not fast sewing… 😀
I think I need to sew for myself now… I’m getting so jealous of her clothes… hahahah it’s ridiculous! But thing is I don’t have half the satisfaction when I sew for myself, I really love sewing kids clothes.
Thanks for stopping by. Hugs! ❤
