Pattern: Pierrot Tunic by Made by Rae, without the ruffle and substituting rows of shirring instead of the elastic casing. She was throwing out sewing tips for this modification on instagram yesterday. It is a ridiculously fast pattern to churn out, so if you are looking for a quick and easy sew, I recommend it.
Fabric: Anne-Marie Murphy for Cloud9 Organic, Maman, Les Petite Filles - this fabric feels like a dream, and is such a sweet print. I knew Ruby would go crazy for the little girls and the baby. Currently on sale at Fabricworm!
Ruby is not my most willing model, but she has reached that glorious stage where she is bribe-able. While fruit snacks are not my #1 choice in photo props, they are totally worth the joy brought to this two year old.
So about the leggings ... my first kcwc fail of this session. I know they don't look bad, but they are already in the scrap bin. I cut them late at night with my attention divided between Gray's Anatomy and the stretch was in the wrong direction. Wah, waaaah. I sewed them up anyway, just to see if they would fit, and seams started popping on the first wearing. Lesson learned! Always pay attention to the stretch of the knit! I'll remake them later this week.
The fruit snacks ran out, and so did Ruby's patience. She hasn't caught the kcwc fever. Can't you just read that look on her face? Are you done mom? Can I take this off now?
