The “I’m really into Polkadots” Girl pants and Tunic
I know I know I’m late again! I didn’t mean to be I promise. I even had this one finished a month ago but then as things will do one simply kept leading to another and before any of us were ready it was Friday. Oh well I hope you like Emily’s dots just the same. There are days when I really wish I could pull off dressing like my 4 year old and this outfit really fits the bill for that. I mean really she is wearing 3 different polka dot fabrics and polka dot ribbon and people have been telling her just how cute she is all day long.
Polka dots are a current favorite of her’s so I’ve had this one planned out for a while. The pants are design 13 from Ottobre 1/2011 and were fun and just a touch challenging to sew. They have a very tiny (I had to cut off some of the 4 inch zipper) fly, cool angled slash type pockets worked into the seams in the back, and tiny little front pockets. I didn’t have enough fabric for the cargo pockets the pattern included so I did ribbon stripes down the outseam instead. The top if from the Japanese pattern book Girly Style but I hope you will forgive me not telling you which pattern. The book is somewhere in the house and who knows how much later my post would be if I had to find it before posting. It was easy to sew though despite not having English directions. Just make sure you trace that book in a well lit area because those pattern sheets can be something to figure out.
Fabric: brown with pink dots left from another project, I yard pink with big brown dots ($6.00), brown with white dots purchased at some point for something but I don’t remember what
Notions: tiny blue zipper from stash, pink ribbon with brown dots also from stash, brown button from a grab bag, brown fold over elastic for button loop left over from pantie project, pink snap from stash, and elastic you guessed it also from stash
Patterns: Otto 1/2011 design 13, top from Girly Style
Year: both are modern and still available on Etsy
First worn: Today
Wear again: Most likely
Total cost: the only new addition was $6.00 so I don’t want to think too much about the rest
