While sewing like a mad thing for a local play, my thoughts went again and again to clothing I want to sew for my girls. I was especially looking forward to making a Redondo skirt for my 5 year old. However, she got her hands on Ottobre 03/06, the same one I found in a rubbermaid tub of her toys awhile back, and asked me to PLEASE make her #23. This was quite the surprise.
- She's a skirt girl and only wears pants when I insist on it because we've got grungy work to do outside, or because of the weather. (Currently 27 degrees F.)
- This pant style just doesn't get me interested in sewing. It's cute in the pic, just nothing I want to make.
- It's WINTER! Those pants are for summer sun.
I've looked over my fabric to find something that will work, and more importantly, something that I won't mind giving away since I figure the odds of her actually deciding she likes these pants is at about 50%. Ha. It's not easy parting with fabric, especially as I love them all. Here's what I've decided on. The darker print is for the pants, and the striped one will be for a top of some sort.
