Prepare yourself for some extreme cuteness! Today I’m participating in the Project Run & Play Summer Hack-stravaganza tour. It’s a fun event where the participants are challenged to take a pattern and use it to create a look by “Hacking” or changing a pattern to work to fit a vision, or to copy something like ready-to-wear fashion. We used 3 patterns for today’s coordinating brother/sister outfits.
Let’s start with Baby, shall we? He’s wearing a pair of Cobalt Shorts in a very fast and easy version! I also sewed up another quick knit version of these for him, so watch for a post about Baby’s whole new wardrobe…
The Cobalt Shorts pattern recommends knit fabric, but because the elastic in the back can be tightened to whatever is needed, using knit fabric was no problem at all! I made the Bermuda length, with a faux fly. The knit fabric I used is a great premium cotton lycra from CaliFabrics.
Baby’s shirt is the Thyme Shirt pattern, but using a knit fabric! This was a very easy switch…I just used a stretch stitch when sewing the shirt. I’ve had this blue arrows fabric in my stash for a while, but I love how vibrant blue it is! It’s sold out, but here is one very similar of a good quality knit fabric.
What do we have here? It’s hard to tell, but if you had a maxi dress with a circle skirt, you’d have a hard time standing still too!
This time we used the By Hand London circle skirt calculator to figure out the measurements and added a circle skirt to the Aurora Raglan bodice.
One other tiny thing we did to the pattern was to sew those cute shoulder ties down in place. Because SOMEONE likes to pull on the ties and then request that they be tied over and over again.
This is what it looks like when you see your big sister spinning and you think if you run in circles you are spinning too! Everyone adores this Baby and laughs and encourages his antics all day long!
On her part, Tina is delighted beyond all measure to have a coordinating brother/sister outfit. She has matching clothes to her mom, her sisters, and now her baby brother. At her age, this is the pinnacle of fashion!
Okay, one more of that dancing princess, because she just simply could not stop prancing and dancing in this dress! I think we’re going to have make her several more of these dresses! She was delighted to learn how to go up and down stairs (lift up the front of your dress like a lady) and Annie taught her how to curtsy too!
