So, Plan B. Make the kids outfits. I had gotten this flower pattern 50% off and had plans to make it into a dress for Lorelai anyway. And then found this cute oval Cheerio fabric for a shirt for Gabriel and...phew! They matched!!!! :)
We'll start with Gabriel...
|Sewing boys clothes is much harder. There are a lot of details that can really mess up the fit of the outfit if done incorrectly.|
|I love this oval Cheerio print. Wish I could remember who it's by. It was an impulse buy so I didn't really pay attention. The pattern is by Heidi & Finn on Etsy. I love the detail down the front of the shirt where it buttons up. Subtle, but nice.|
|This shirt had lots of fun detail. The epaulette on the sleeve. And a pocket on the front.|
|I adore this squared off neckline. This pattern was the Elsie pattern from Sew Sweet Patterns, also on Etsy.|
|I chose a button closure for the back. Yeah...I need to find different shoes before her pictures.|
|Sorry for the 1960's vintage feel of this, but with concrete as the background I just had to do something to make it softer. It's hard to get a good picture of a brand new walker who is getting used to shoes... in the grass...on a hill.|
