I bought two pieces of fabric from a line called Wonderland this summer, it really spoke to me and I just had to make something for lil' stinker with it. I kept it out for a few months, pondering the perfect piece--dress? Skirt? Tricycle cover?? I put it away until I was ready for cutting it, which was also hard to do. I decided on a Butterick pattern for a top.
I was happy with the results, but, that dot fabric is just so damn cute, I needed more. I wanted to do ruffle capris, but, I do not have good luck with E wearing those (too tight, pooped in them, made a hole in the crotch, etc.). I opted for a Lazy Days skirt, because, it is simple and would not be too much with the top, it turned out cute.
I was not thrilled with the two pieces together when she put it on, but, she insisted on wearing it. Pants look much better with a blouse that is flowy like this. Yes, I am an expert in the baby fashion industry, my credentials came with her birth certificate.
I did give in and bought two pairs of denim jeans for her for the cold weather season, I prefer her to wear skirts and dresses, but, sometimes, a girl just needs pants (now she has 5 pairs of pants for fall/winter) I am proud of myself, she only had 4 pairs of shorts for summer and 6 times that amount in dresses or skirts.
