Contrary to what my (embarrassingly pitiful) lack of posting on this blog may imply, I’m actually up to my 24-week baby bump in sewing projects. So much so that I decided to get a couple-days head start for Spring KCW this week, and began over the weekend, to free up some time next weekend for an April 30th birthday gift deadline for a certain niece.
First up – Geranium tops, courtesy of yet another fabulous pattern from Made by Rae! I opted for the cap sleeve bodice/pleated version to kick off what I now know will be a long and loving relationship with this pattern. After all, I have two 3 1/2 year old girls who happen to love dresses and swingy tops. I made these in a size 3T with added length equivalent to a 4T. I will probably make a 4T bodice for C next time… hers seems to be a bit snug under the arms. This fun floral print is Spring Street by Carolyn Gavin, and has been in my stash for at least a couple of years. I even have quite a bit left for some Oliver + S shorts planned for later this week!
Don’t let these little photo-bomb faces fool you… they love their new tops… oh and a little drama here and there too.
