In addition to finishing the pair of jeans for K, I made a shirt to match another lonely pair of Gymboree leggings. This time I started with a RTW shirt and did a reverse applique of a whale using a template from Lollychops . I then cut out a pair of long sleeves and sewed them onto the existing sleeve seam. Tip: It's a lot easier to do if you sew the sleeves together before attaching them to the the shirt. I'm thinking of going back and adding some blue to the hem as B seems to have grown again!
K in her Sarita jeans
I think she managed to lose a few pounds between Tuesday and today. *rolling my eyes* Even though I took in the waist/hips 3 inches total, the jeans are still a little loose in the waist. I swear they fit fine when she tried them on Tuesday night. She ended up wearing a belt to school. I had a bit of a fun reaction from my husband this morning over the jeans. K told him I had made the jeans and he asked, "From what?", thinking I had just embellished a regular pair. I said, "From fabric." and he was shocked and replied, "I didn't know you could make pants!". :)
I also took some pictures this morning before the rain started of M in B's Ottobre outfit that I finished last week.
Both the shirt and the leggings are from the 06/07 Ottobre Design issue. The shirt is the Tilda T-shirt dress and the leggings are the Lily leggings. I originally made this for B in a size 92 but the top was a wee bit big on her so it's become M's for now. The fabric is from Hobby Lobby. There's been talk on the Ottobre group I belong to that HL knits shrink quite a bit so maybe after a few more washes it'll fit B better.
