I just love the shape of this pattern. From the square neck, to the front tucks to the flutter sleeves, it's just so sweet. I wanted to make a long dress with the fabric I had paired it with but just didn't have quite enough. So, I opted to make the blouse instead and the cold weather made me really want to make something with long sleeves.
The size 10/12 girls' long sleeve shirt took about 1.5 yards of fabric. This floral 100% cotton fabric was actually a scrap piece left over from a shower curtain I made about 15 years ago. I really just can't seem to part with anything.
Here are some images of the finished product soon to be available on Etsy. Of course if you'd like a 20% discount just email me with ALSPAC in the subject line of your email. Feel free to pass along to your friends.
I just had Sam pull the next Amy Lyn's Stash Pattern Attack Challenge piece out of the bucket. I was hoping it would be something I could make for myself, a vintage dress, or funky jacket. But, no such luck. I clearly have too many little girl patterns and sadly no little girls to wear them.
So piece #4 in the ALSPAC challenge is this totally cute romper with it's chosen fabric.
