The weather has changed in this side of the world, and it feels much like autumn. I wish I was in “cooler months sewing groove”, but I’m having a hard time letting summer go.
So here it is, my last summer sewing post.
By the title you may have guessed that it follows the previous theme…
Here, I think, it’s a perfectly good example of “taking it a bit to far”… this is kind of hurting my eyes 😛
I bought this fabric several years ago (my sweet baby boy wasn’t even in our plans yet), with the intention of sewing a beach dress and a drawstring backpack to go with it.
That never happened, as you can see for yourself, but this fabric couldn´t have been anything else but beach/bath wear. After all it is a terry knit…with fishes!!!!
Hers is a “poncho-like” bathing suit cover. Something easy to put on and off.
His are trunks and a reversible hat.
- Patterns: Cape “Liseron” from lou & me , trunks from Burda June 2010 and “Reversible bucket hat” from Oliver+S
- Modifications to the patterns: None
- Sizes: 10 years for the cape, 104cm for the trunks and size M for the bucket hat
- Fabric: Cotton terry knit
On our way home from the beach, the little girl decided to do a fashion statement, and she never wore the poncho the “right” way again 😀
Marta commented in one of Ana Sofia’s posts that matching one kids clothes can be quite practical as it is easier to find them in the crowd… I think she is right.
I couldn’t lose this kids… even if I tried 😉
Now I’m off to find my autumn sewing mojo… KCW is around the corner, and I do NOT want to miss that.
Hugs and kisses
