.....and we are outta cake.
So Miss C was allowed to stand on a chair for these pics and that is something she is Not Allowed To Do. As a result I have some nice pics but have set a precedent for mucking about on chairs which is not a good thing.
Hmmm...Mum really should pay more attention to dusting these windowsills
Here is the next garment for Miss C’s wardrobe.
It’s another vintage pattern, this time courtesy of my sister whose pattern and fabric stash puts mine to shame.
I made the short version with pockets and didn’t change anything except for the back fastening.
The pattern called for a zip down the centre back and there is no way I am putting a zip into a garment that will get worn for 6-12 months, so I just put in a button and loop (it has to be a pink button Mum, not cream!) at CB neck and cut the back skirt on the fold.
Wonder if this curtain can support 13 kilos....hang on that ric rac trim is matched perfectly at the side seam!
A bit of cream corduroy left over from the vintage skirt and some cream and black brushed cotton, both from the opshop at some point. Plus some vintage black ric rac trim.
At a grand total of about $2.50.
There's gotta be a door in here somewhere!
Miss C loves this top. It is a great shape and fit, and reminds me a little of the lovely Oliver and S ice cream dress so I am very happy that this one worked out. It has only one size (size 4) so I think I will make a dozen or so versions for summer in some nice breezy prints.
Trouble is Miss C thinks that ALL the drawings on the pattern envelope can be made up. She has requested/demanded that I make a pair of the orange shoes next. Not sure how I am going to tackle that one. I have got a bit of orange leather hanging around somewhere though! But maybe I shouldn’t tell her that.
