Twist Top & Skirt

This is the same twist top I posted about below. It is not a great fit on my dress form. Here it is paired with a yoga-style a-line skirt created with chocolate lollipop fabric.

Just the skirt:
It fits my model much better:
Thanks for looking!

Twist Top & Gauchos

I love this top pattern. It is only my second attempt at this top. The first on yielded a top that is very low cut. So the pattern was modified and here is the result. It is still a deep v-neck but more modest then the first attempt.

The gaucho are so comfortable with a yoga-style waistband.

Pumpkin Raglan

I know it is still summer but I love the fall. This raglan is a nice reminder of the cooler weather to come - not soon enough though it is still 100+ degrees everyday here. This shirt is going to be part of a collaboration with Mama Stone Creations on hyena cart. It is sized at 12-18 months. I think it is going to be for a stocking in September/October time frame.

Thanks for looking!

Giraffe Raglan

Retro Giraffes are so popular right now - and why not it is so cute! I actually have this fabric in 3 colorways. The applique is a reverse applique.

Guitar Wallet

I was contacted by someone and asked if I could make a wallet for a little boy. It is a bi-fold wallet with a velcro closure tab.

There is a slot for dollars, slots for credit cards and a velro closed pouch for change.

I hope the little man has lots of money to fill it up!
Thanks for looking.

Cargo Pants

I love all the detail in boys clothing. The pants have hip pockets, front pockets with flaps, and pleated back pockets with flaps. The waist is elastic for easy on and the mock fly is a nice touch to look more grown up. There is a raglan and boxer briefs to match these pants - it will be in the next post.

Thanks for looking!

Chocolate Lollipop Extra Ruffles

This set is like the one I did not too long ago - with the addition of ruffles on the pants too.

Lounge Set - Curious George Style

How fun is Curious George? this comfy lounge set pairs Curious George lounge pants with RTW (store bought) shirt appliqued with a piece of the George fabric. After my daughter saw this set she requested a set like this one now. Curious George is one of her favorite book series.

I am not sure why this photo uploaded sideways.

Thanks for looking!

Space Robots

This outfit is for a little man who loves robots. The robot fabric is a Japanese gauze. For the pockets I lined it with cotton to make it more durable for a little man. The raglan is not as puckery as it seem - it does not fit my stand properly.

Thanks for looking!

Birch Blossom Capri Set

This capri set is for the older sister to the little girl receiving the Sophia Willow set below. Halter top with shirred back is paired with ruffled capris. I added an optional sash to this outfit to break up the pattern of the top. The sash can be tied in the back, front or side depending on how the little lady would like to wear it. It could also double as a headband.

With the sash and headband:
