To continue on with the owl collection the girls needed some leggings. I made 2 pairs of size 8 and 3 pairs of size 5 leggings for the little girls using Oliver & S Playtime Leggings. Jay and I went to Portland for our anniversary last weekend and he so nicely humored me and went to Rose City Textiles. I found this equestrian fabric. It is thick, stretchy and very sturdy. The perfect thing for winter outdoor leggings for the girls. It sewed up like a dream!
I was looking for a dressed up t-shirt to make for the little girls. When we were at Fabric Depot last weekend I found Burda 9439, a super cute t-shirt with puffy sleeves. I've never made a Burda pattern so I thought that I would break from my Jalie and Oliver & S patterns and give it a try. This turned out cute to the max. The only difficulty I encountered with this pattern was copying it, I had to trace it a couple of times to get the correct size. The fabric is Riley Blake's - Happy Flappers in knit. I made 2 in size 5 for Alyssa and 2 in size 8 for Amalia.
I know that I have a winning pattern when I make it over and over and then some more. This is the case with Oliver & S's Nature Walk Yoga Pants. I made 3 in size 5 for Alyssa and 2 in size 8 for Amalia. The fabric was a chocolate ponte, I only purchased 4 yards and was quite happy that it made 5 pairs of pants. The chocolate brown should coordinate with the Riley Blake - Happy Flappers.
The little girls chose owls as their theme for this falls clothes. I purchased quite a bit of Riley Blakes' Happy Flappers collection from Fabric.com. This is an Oliver & S Field Trip Raglan T-Shirt in two of the knits. The turned out really cute! There should be lots of owl themed items coming up.
I finished 4 pairs of these jeans a few weeks ago. This is by far the best jeans pattern I've used. I made 2 pairs with owls and 2 plain pairs in a brown lightly stretchy denim. They turned out amazing, the pictures don't do them justice and the fit on the little girls is perfect!
