I can tell that you’ve been missing seeing my little munchkins on the ol’ blog lately. Right? No worries, in the midst of sewing Washi Dresses, I found some time to sew for this little stinker, so I have a few finished projects to share.
The ribbons are from Michelle of Wunderpop, who sent me a pile of ribbons last spring to try out.
I knew immediately that the green ribbon needed to go on a Pierrot Tunic, even though they would have been just as cute for Elliot on something boyish. It just looks so great with those green corduroy pants, no?
I also had just watched Liesl Gibson’s Lazy Days Skirt Workshop on Creativebug, and though I’ve glanced at the pattern on the Oliver+S blog a number of times, something about seeing it done on video just made me want to jump out of my seat and whip one up. So I did:
It was so fun how fast it flew together, and without the hemming (Liesl shows you how to use the ribbon to hem the skirt) it’s even faster and cuter than you could imagine.
Clementine loves wearing skirts right now, so this one was a big hit this summer. Even so, I haven’t managed to take a photo of her in it yet beyond this Instagram shot, where she’s covered in chocolate gelato. Hee. The best of summer.
I’ve made some of the images in this post “pinnable” when you click the pin it! buttons in this post; feel free to pin any of the those images from this post! Thanks!
