Going into this weeks challenge I thought I was going to be using some fabric that I had bought from my local fabric store and making Let's Go Fly a Kite Dress from Jesse with CINO. But as I looked at the fabric and thought about the mostly white material with one of the worlds messiest toddlers (today 4 outfits). I realized it just might have to wait until Boston is ready for that.
But I love so much more what I did...
Waves of Summer Reversible Tunic
Wellen Tank Tutorial by luvinthemommyhood. I was excited about this project because it reminded me of the pieced rainbow pillowcase dresses that we made last March for Saint Patrick's Day. And just like that day, I had a blast putting together the mix of fabrics.
The fabrics that I used for this top were:
Michael Miller Ta Dot Teal
Sweet Shoppe - Little Dot
Riley Blake Designs Small Chevron Tone on Tone in Yellow
Michael Miller Bella Butterfly Sweet Spots Green
And then the plaid on the shirt which was the base for the color scheme. I couldn't find a designer on the fabric, sorry.
Instead of cutting a wide neckline I decided to use a keyhole with a ribbon in the back. This allowed me to make it reversible. The other side not only gives us a two for one on shirt (remember said she was the world's messiest toddler), but also protects the back side of the quilted fabric.
Floating on a Cloud Summer Skirt
For Ryder's Shirts I used Simplicity 2907 and added 2 inches to the back pattern piece and collar and 2 inches to the length, because though Ryder is pretty skinny he has very broad shoulders and long torso. I love this pattern for making shirts for little boys, it is seriously easy!
Mellow Yellow Shirt
Cool Boy Shirt
Update: Fabric for this shirt was found at Joann's. On the salvage it said it was a Joann's exclusive print, but I can't find it online (after I an hour I gave up the search)
