Some sewing going on...


Sometimes, when I am in the midst of meticulous sewing of custom shirts for my clients...I need a break. So I steal a bit of time from my schedule to whip up some cute clothes for the 2 little girls in my life, Julianna and Brooklyn. This set features slightly re-designed versions of Ottobre Patterns from Issue 3/2009...for Brooklyn, age 21 months.  Cotton/lycra knit was used for the cropped leggings, and Kaffe Fasset cotton fabric was used for the Tunic.

I really like the color combinations...but now wonder if it might be too "sophisticated" for a toddler. 
What do you think?

Love it! I have two girls and really enjoyed outfits like this, sometimes I needed a break from the cutesy. It's beautiful!

I think the color combination is spot on for a toddler. My now-15-year-old would've adored it at that age.

I always enjoy seeing your interpretations of the Ottobre patterns. Thanks for sharing this!

Adorable! I love these colors for a little one. Pink can get monotomous. As always, beautiful work.

I like seeing non-traditional colors sometimes on babies and toddlers. I mean, who would have thought toddlers look cute in Burberry plaids, but they do.

I just used that same woven fabric to make toddler pants, which I paired with a pink singlet...so obviously I don't think it is too sophisticated for a toddler! Gorgeous taste!!!
