I saw this striped fabric on a custom fabric website and thought it would be perfect for the pattern test I did on the cropped jacket. Unfortunately, I spent way too much on fabric for these pieces, but sometimes you just gotta splurge. Most of my fabrics I buy are at a discount fabric warehouse, so I don’t normally spent a lot per yard.
- Stripes – Moonbeam Textiles – Sparkle & Glam striped French terry
- Black arrows – Moonbeam Textiles – Sparkle & Glam vertical arrows French terry
- Gold sparkle – Moonbeam Textiles – Sparkle & Glam Gold Sparkle cotton spandex
- Dream big panel – Moonbeam Textiles – Sparkle & Glam Dream big youth panel
- White arrows – Moonbeam Textiles – Sparkle & Glam Tossed Arrows cotton/spandex
Here are all of the pieces I made with the above fabrics, and how they can all go together. I have another few plain black pieces I made for her that will go with them, too. I bought 2 yards of both the black arrows and the gold sparkle, since she needs over a yard of fabric to make her bottoms.
This jacket is so cute! It is an unlined jacket, and pretty easy to throw together. It also comes in a long jacket and dress. Any version would be cute. It is meant to be fitted, so she doesn’t recommend long sleeved shirts underneath. My girl has skinny arms, so it isn’t as fitted on her as it was on other testers. I made a 10W and 13L.
I used most of one yard on the jacket, with and extra half yard for the hood lining and bands.
These were made out of the French terry and I kept it simple. She didn’t want pockets on the pants, so I left them off. I also made them long and just hemmed them instead of adding the bands on the bottom.
This is similar to the tattoo horse top I made her previously, only I made it short sleeves. (Sorry, didn’t get a picture of it without the jacket!)
I left off the pockets on this top, and just did the side panel pieces plain. No cowl either, and I used the hood from the Nivalis pattern. I added on thumbhole cuffs.
Not Sofilantjes for this one. I like the leggings from this pattern, and they fit her well.
All the pieces will go well together. She is wearing a black long sleeved shirt under the hood with some of the pictures, and she also has some plain black leggings, and a pair of black stretch velvet domi pants. Lots of stuff to mix and match!
A fun tween capsule for her to be able to wear this winter. 🙂
