Another outfit for Peyton today. I came across the skirt fabric at JoAnn's recently and just knew it would make a cute fall skirt. I tried out this tutorial over at Make it and Love it. It was fun to try something new, but I kind wish I'd just made a basic elastic casing for the waistband. I had to force her to tuck in the shirt and she promptly un-tucked it mid way through taking pictures. In short it was more time consuming to do it this way, and most likely no one is going to see it. :(
For the top I was able to use some green knit fabric from my ever growing stash of knits. I used the Big Kid Flashback skinny tee, this was a size 6. I love this pattern, easy to sew and very well drafted! I was pretty sure Peyton was going to think there wasn't enough pink in the outfit for her liking, so I decided to enlarge one of the flowers from the skirt and applique it to the shirt. I was quite pleased with it. I would have liked it to be about a half inch higher but that is being really picky! :)
I will add the pink circle for the flower was a bit tricky. Locally I couldn't find the right shade of pink so I ended up at Old Navy this morning and found a clearance t-shirt that was the right color. At just over $2 it was a great deal and now I can cut the rest up for upcycled skinny tee!
The tights are from Target like yesterday tights were. Sparkles are very important to this 4 and half year old.
I hope she wears this outfit, it turned out like I planned, which always makes me happy. Hoping to have something for Carter tomorrow! :)
