Here is another seasonal print that is for winter. This print is a kids panel, with a matching coordinate from Zenith & Quasar fabrics.
The panel looks like this (print yet to come):
24″ tall x 58-60″ wide cut including:
1 front panel (24″ x 20ish”)
1 back panel, solid color (24″ x 20ish”)
1 coordinate print (24″ x 20ish”)
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get full length arms out of the width of the coordinate, so I had to be creative.
It is also directional, so no trying one way for one side and one for the other. I had some matching bamboo lycra that I used to fill in the sleeve heads where it was too wide for the fabric. I created a faux double sleeve.
I added a split band to the bottom, too.
I also needed to make some matching bottoms. We live in matchy matchy town here where pretty much everything is an outfit. I didn’t have enough left of the bamboo lycra to get all the bottoms out of it, so we went into “cobble together” mode.
I wanted them to be a fun tween-y look as she is going into middle school this year. I worry a little that some of the more unique outfits I have made for her will give her unwanted attention.
I used the 5 out of 4 Shenanigans skort and leggings in a size 14w and 18L. She’s all legs here.
Next, I cut the crap out of the patterns to get the look I wanted. I cut apart the skirt to have the leftover fabric from the top along the sides.
For the skort, here is a little mod that I made for it. I wanted to have some gathering and ties on the side seam, so I extended it out from the middle to give it more length there, and then cut the sides apart to get in the different fabrics.
More outfits to come…I got a bunch of strike-offs to sew up. This tends to make sure I get clothes sewed up in short order!
