This week’s theme on Kid’s Clothes week is mini me. I had originally planned to up-cycle one of my old things into something for Hannah, but it didn’t work, so the wheels were still spinning in my mind and I hadn’t made a decision yet. But as I put her into this outfit yesterday, I glanced down and…
Even when i don’t mean to, this little chic is dressed in her momma’s favorites.
Navy stripes? Check. Gray? Check. Coral pop? Check. Boyfriend cardigan? Check!!!
I have been sewing up so many pretty dresses for Hannah recently that a cardigan was in order. I pulled out the Greenpoint Cardigan, which I got with the Sew Fab bundle last year but had not used yet, pulled out my fabric stash, played with a few different combinations, and then sewed one up before I changed my mind.
As to the leggings, they have been cut and in my sewing basket since I made this dress in January!! It’s the leggings from the O&S Playtime Tunic and Leggings combo. I looked back this week at my KCW Plans post and remembered that leggings were on the list, so I decided it was time to finish these ones up.
And now I can join the rest of the sewing world in the, “Why did it take me so long?/I love these/I’m never going back” in regards to sewing leggings. I’m sold.
As to the O+S pattern, the fit is perfect, the length is perfect, I didn’t even hem them, and I love them.
I have loved the floral jeans/pants/leggings trend for the past 3 years, yet I have never actually taken the plunge. I got in on the colored jeans, and striped jeans, and pleather jeans (omg I love my pleather ones so much, seriously,) and I’ve tried floral ones on SO MANY TIMES!! I love them so much, but the silly practical side of me always seems to win out on this one. I mean, how many days of the week can you drop your kid off for school wearing your floral jeans? Just one, I think. No more than that.
Anyway, it wasn’t until I had it all together on her that I realized that she was dressed in an “Erin’s Favorites” ensemble. Everything down to her navy (fake) converse.
This girl. I love her!
