I just realized I never shared a project I completed this summer with you! (shocking, right, considering i’ve been dragging on most topics lately)
Their mama wanted to throw a Dr. Seuss themed Thing 1 & Thing 2 birthday party and came to me with some ideas for their outfits after having trouble finding just the right thing on etsy. I was up for the challenge, so she bought some fun Dr. Seuss fabric, I snagged some patterns from the interwebs and off I went. Here they are modeling their outfits:
The pattern I used for Kaylee’s dress was from here. Its super simple, and I think super cute with the little ruffled sleeves. I made the dress with the Thing 1 Thing 2 fabric and a turquoise oval pattern that Dana found. We took some artistic liberties making a diaper cover for underneath with matching ruffles. For the diaper cover I used a tutorial found here. TOO CUTE.
For Ethan’s Shirt, I used this pattern. This was my first foray into anything remotely tailored, and I think it went pretty well! I made trial outfits for both of them to ensure the fit, which definitely helped to have a chance to try out the pattern. I definitely need some work on learning how to nicely finish the garment on the outside, but the focus for this was just to make sure Ethan looked cute. I added my own little flourish, a pocket square in the turquoise fabric to match his sister.
D made them awesome birthday hats, and off we were to an afternoon of fun (and lounging. . .)
