Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I made my little girl a new dress and my boy some shorts to celebrate the occassion.
I have made this dress before and was so happy with the fit that I made it again, just lengthening the skirt to try and keep up with her growing legs! It has such a lovely opening in the back which is a lovely detail. The pattern is from the 2014 Summer edition of the Japanese magazine Cucito. You can see my other version here.
As for the shorts, I was going to make a more tailored short, with a fitted waistband, belt loops, inset pockets and fly zip opening....I was dreaming!! All I can say is Christmas is such a busy time of the year I ended up with an elasticated waistband with patch pockets. They still turned out well, who's to know what's hiding under the t-shirt anyway! I popped a little detail trim on the cuff too.
