When the Field Trip pattern came out I snatched it up very quick in both sizes, I had to have it for my all four of my boys. I have seen so many on the Flicker group that I just loved. I never thought about making one for my little princess. That is until last Monday I needed to make a white shirt to go under her costume. Now I have made the Hopscotch top many, many times and do love the pattern but I wanted something very simple and quick so I went with this pattern. I never intended it to be a shirt for everyday wear, until the ribbon came out!
You see, I used some scrap fabric for the shirt and you'll never guess but I had to piece together the front to make the fabric big enough to cut out the front pattern piece. Sweet pea wanted ribbon on it any way so I sewn it right over the middle seam to hide it. She loves this shirt, score! I am already planning on making her a pink pair of After School pants and this hoes with it perfect.
After the first shirt I decided to make her two more for this fall/winter wardrobe. They are a very quick, easy sew, it was the easiest shirt I have ever made her. The stripped pink sweater knit top is fabric from her stash that we bought last year on clearance from Hobby Lobby. I doubled the width of the neck binding here for more of a sweater look. This one is her favorite one all three. The fabric is oh so snuggly soft!
This is fabric that I planned for a Sail Boat top but I now glad I saved it for this top. A lovely color for fall.
In case you are wondering, the pants are Mia and Ben from last year. So far they still fairly well but I think she will out grow them before the cold weather turns back to warm. Until we shall both enjoy them.
So what are you working on for fall/winter clothes? Or Summer for my friends on the other side of world?
Have a great weekend!
