Birds of a Feather Ruffled Outft

Here's Miss Eva again showing off another one of her outfits! This was a fun one to make!

The bodice and shorts use a bird print fabric and the 3 tiers of ruffles are different fabrics on the top and shorts. The owl outfit was an example of a single ruffled outfit and this shows what the outfit looks like with 3 rows of ruffles on the top and the shorts.

Labor on the top is $20.

Owl Ruffled Outfit

Miss Eva is showing off her new outfit! Her mom and I went fabric shopping and picked up lots of great prints to make up some fun summer outfits. 

This outfit features owls on the bodice and shorts and a sparkly dot for the contrast. The sewing pattern I used has the option for 3 rows on ruffles on the top and shorts by we chose to make this one with a single ruffle on both. It really makes the top look like a dress but the shorts make it easier to play and have fun in! The straps are criss-crossed and there is elastic on the bodice back making it fit nicely.

Yellow Polka Dots

In my 'spare time' I've been working on a few things for myself. Really, spare time just means I've been staying up late. :) I found the yellow polka dot fabric in the late winter sometime and just had to buy several yards of it, not really knowing what I'd make. I came across a couple cute patterns later and knew what I wanted.

The first item I made is a vintage 1950's halter top summer dress. The pattern is a reproduction of a vintage pattern that I purchased from La Prairie Lady. Before I made the dress I made a mock up to adjust the fit to get it just right. The back cut out is really a fun element of the dress. I added the black binding along the bodice and hem of the skirt to make it stand out a bit.

The second item I made is a working muslin of the Afternoon Top. It has a nice loose feel to it, great to tuck into a pair of pants or to just leave out. It was a quick shirt to make and I'll probably make more.

The last item I made is a 31 purse sleeve to match. I love the idea of the changeable outer part of the purse and created my own pattern so I could match my outfits exactly. It was a fun, quick little project. :)

I hope to get some more 'spare time' soon!
