Little Miss Floral

Posted on: 28 October, 08

I finished this a couple weeks ago and almost forgot to post photos.  This outfit is for the art teacher’s daughter who just turned two. It was one of those when I just felt like sewing something sweet and pretty.  I dug through my stash and found these two pieces of fabric that matched perfectly. 






The top is Design #9 from the 03/04 issue of Ottobre Design.  The fabric is a printed rib knit that was left over from a top I made for myself.  I used FOE to bind the neckline. 




The pants were made from Design #14 from the 04/08 issue.  The fabric is nubby silk twill.  I know… silk for a two year old?  It is washable, so why not?  It was also left over from another project.  This is a view of the pintucks on the front.  I eliminated the front pockets because they seemed unnecessary and overly fussy. 





Here is the back pocket detail.  The pintucks make the pockets a bit poofy.  Not a look I would want on my pants, but kind of cute on a two year old. I bound the edges with a printed bias tape that closely mimics the print of the knit top. 

Here is a full view of the back. 

The edges of the hem were also bound with the printed bias tape.  It is a little large for the Little Miss, but not by much.  It should fit her well by spring.  Mom loves the “not found in the local mall” look.

Very cute outfit, Teri, great colors and details.

That is very cute! You are so generous. I guess this is one good way to sew for girls when you have boys. LOL.

That is such great outfit! Love the fabrics you chose.

What a fabulous outfit. And good for you – getting the girl to wear silk at such a young age. g

Teri…..Love love LOVE this set!
The details are fabulous, and your fabric choice divine!

Love the outfit and unusual colors. That little girl will be so well dressed. LOVE the fabric used on those pants. Why shouldn’t a little girl have silk? Yes indeed.

Ooh! Love that. Nice job with the trim/piping! It looks great! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I can see you love Ottobre too (:
