Another Pierrot


I nearly forgot that I finished this a couple weeks ago. It’s another Pierrot top for Clementine, but this one is 18-24 months. Yes, friends, that means I have digitized/begun grading the pattern…please don’t get too hopeful as I feel like my work rate is currently roughly analogous to the flow of molasses outside. And yes, if you needed any other reminders than the fact that it’s been 15 degrees outside for the last week, it IS January…. I think I’ll make the sleeve more a 3/4 length next time rather than the 1/2 length it currently is, but other than that I think it’s scaled up quite nicely.

The neckline always looks a little crazy after it’s first sewn, but after washing that ruffle will definitely calm down and still be just as cute without looking clownlike. I am so enamored with this little tunic.

please don’t use/pin photos of Clementine. thanks!

And I know I’ve blathered on about how much I love the Anna Maria Horner voiles before so I’ll spare you the love-fest and just say that this one is also just as divine as the others (it’s from the Little Folks collection if you’re having trouble finding it). I am not sure why I never noticed this print before but now I am totally in love. The photos don’t really do the colors justice. Plus it’s perfect for cutting on the bias to get a nice diagonal plaid.

  1. Now that I have a daughter I will be watching closely for this pattern to be up!!

    Would you ever be willing to do a tutorial on how you resize your patterns? I have some free patterns that are almost all 2T and I am trying to figure out how to adjust the sizes, would love some tips, etc!!

  2. I cannot wait for this pattern. I'm dying for it actually. I love it so much I wanna marry it..haha. So fun and modern but also so much whimsy.

  3. oh my good gracious is that child darling! & the tunic is so cute too – i just love it! in that first picture, she looks to me a lot like you do in your pictures.

  4. Oh Rae! I love it!! And I totally agree, the AMH voile is so lovely…buttery and silk-like!! Ahh, good choice my dear, good choice indeed!!

  5. This is just adorable – and the scrunched nose picture makes me giggle πŸ™‚ Looking forward to this pattern!

  6. What a beauty! Both the top and the girl wearing it! Oh! soo..wishing I have a girl right now πŸ™‚ (I have 3 boys btw).

  7. oh cute! And seriously….how old is she looking? The baby is almost gone! Okay, not really but you know, she's growing up πŸ™‚

  8. Oh Rae, I think this one is even more beautiful than the first one! I am totally in love with this tunic too but have vowed to wait patiently (really! πŸ™‚ ) for the pattern. My consolation is that my daughter is hardly a month older than C, so I am fairly confident that the pattern will include her/their size when it's out πŸ˜‰

    You may be "over-busy" with celebrating the boy just around the corner, but in the mean time, you're doing a terrific job celebrating the girl!
    The fabric is beautiful and it seems so right for the tunic, a wonderful flow! Cutting on the bias is something that hardly ever comes to my mind, but it certainly brings a whole new look to a fabric. Thanks for the reminder! πŸ™‚

  9. yep can't wait for the pattern because I was looking for making one of those pierrot col !!! are you reading my mind ?? πŸ™‚
    Have a lovely day rae !!!!

  10. That is so beautiful. Fabric, design, child–altogether perfect. And please, do not get me started again about how lovely it would be to have a girl to make something like this for…

  11. Ok, as several others have said, I have an 18-month old girly girl and I need this pattern! Having said that, I know all TOO well what my own work rate is, so good luck! We're all cheering for you to get it done! And your little Miss C is such a cutie – is it me or is she looking more and more like you?! πŸ™‚

  12. I was looking for a pattern for tights, came across your web pages on sewing they are fantastic, I noticed you made cloth diapers without snaps, and you make lots of clothes for the kids. I ran across a really great snap press a few years ago when I made cloth diapers for my grandkids, I went to the site the other day and they have it on sale. I found it to be well worth the money and the snaps are not too expensive. about 3 cents a set. If you go with the white in bulk and only get the colors for the top of the snap you dont need so many parts. here is the web site http://www.thesnapstore.com/catalog/index.php/cPath/21

    It has lots of applications I use only the plastic resins you would not be diapointed.

  13. I loved the original shirt and this one is so cute too! Please hurry with the pattern so my granddaughter won't outgrow it!!!! Love the ruffles!

  14. Oh My Gosh!!! How adorable is your little girl!! Too cute! I love that darling little ruffled top too. Do you have a tutorial and possible in a larger size 6 or 7?? You are simply terrific.
