Camo....Again!

Yes, dear readers.....it's another camo shirt! But how could I resist this cute fabric, especially when it was only $2.00 a yard at where else but WalMart ? The pattern is hand-drafted...a simple camp shirt with front and back waist tucks to give it some shape.

Now my sewing will turn back to menswear.....I have many client orders to fill!

Pink Fizzy Shirt


A friend said this shirt reminds her of a refreshing fizzy drink! Bright and fun, it suits my niece Bella's always sunny personality. The pattern started as a BizzKids design, but I ended up making significant changes to the original rather unbalanced draft, including changing the curve of the princess seams and depths of the front and back yokes.

"Camo" Camp Shirt and Jeans


I am pleased with the way this rather plain brown "camo" fabric translated into this hand-drafted little camp shirt featuring front and back waist tucks. Paired with hand-drafted elastic-back jeans, and black hand-drafted T, it makes a cute outfit for my niece Willow.

Little Shirts and Jeans

I just couldn't resist this embroidered camo fabric...so perfect for my niece, Bella! So I made it up into this cute shirt after making some changes to an Ottobre Design pattern, adding front and back tucks at the waist. I just happened to have some distressed olive denim in my stash for jeans from a hand-drafted pattern. I added a red knit T-shirt (also hand-drafted) as a layering piece to brighten the look.
This "mod" print cotton shirt (above) and the aqua print shirt (below) were made from the same BizzKids pattern, for my niece, Willow. Both the black denim and tan cord jeans were made from a hand-drafted pattern.
