Last year my girl got an Olivia figurine that was all dressed for the Opera in a little red strapless ball gown, all the way down to the floor, nice and poofy. She asked me for a matching one a few weeks ago, and with some agreements on slight modifications... umm no it's not going to be strapless... and voila. She loves it. No LOVES it.
The bodice is cut from Sew Lisette 1893, and for the skirt pieces I used the full width of the fabric and gathered it to match the bodice. The fabric is just a red poplin.
My boy, he needed and wanted some new pants, so with the last of some red drill in my stash and a pair of funky pants for my dude.
The pattern is from Blank Slate and highly recommended. I love this pattern:
B. Sized from 18 month - 8 years
C. Short, capri or pant length
D. Choice of pull-on or functional zipper
So all three kids can get something from it and Eva is next for some shorties.
