In essence, this series is dedicated to those children that color outside the lines (so to speak). It's for the girls that love trucks and trains, and the boys who aren't afraid to wear pink! I was thrilled when Alida emailed me and asked me to join in. I met Alida in March 2013 at the Charlotte Girls Night Out hosted by Jess of Sewing Rabbit and Joanns. She's an amazing woman - and someone who I greatly admire!
FABULOUS dress by Jess, I've been considering it.
Pattern: the Nessie Top by Craftiness is Not Optional in 3T
some other fab camo) from Girl Charlee to make Reagan's shirt.
Pattern: the Small Fry Skinny Jeans by Titchy Threads freebie in size 2T
For the pants, I used a jersey knit from my stash that I ordered.... well, lets just say it was a while ago. I ordered it from Fabric Mart in Pennsylvania.I've been wanting to try this pattern.... especially since the freebie pattern would work for Reagan. She's so skinny that she can fit into the 2T pants if they are lengthened a bit. This pattern calls for a more traditional bottom weight fabric, so using a knit was a bit of a risk. But, I'm glad I went with it. Literally, I just used the main pieces for the front and back, and skipped all the fun jeans parts. It worked pretty well. I did lengthen them to fit my tall girl.I used my serger and created an elastic waistband with 3/4 inch elastic.
Seriously, how cute is pink and camo?
Now, she's ready to roll with the boys and go 4 wheeling! And trust me, she'd love nothing better!
