Remember this sweet outfit from Bug and Belle?
Well, here is my take on it. I basically redrew a commercial pattern and added sleeves to it. Then I took a pants pattern, cut it off to cropped length, widened the leg a little and added elastic at the bottom. I have to say that I am very pleased with the results and it was a wonderful challenge for me to try to recreate something from just a picture and only a vaguely similar pattern. My niece, Clair will get this for her birthday next month.
Here is the detail of the embroidery. I cut some of the flowers out of the fabric and made sort of appliques out of them, and then hand embroidered the rest of it.
I took my inspiration from the pants fabric. I absolutely love this "celebrate spring" line of fabric from Moda. The colors remind me of cotton candy.
Finally the back.
Happy weekend to all! I plan to be busy sewing this weekend, trying to get one or two more things ready for Etsy.
