Are you following Made by Rae’s Spring Top Week? I just went through all the entries on flickr and they are pretty great. Some super talented sewers out there. I love the idea of Spring Top Week because it encourages us to sew for US. Which is good, because kids are so much easier to sew for that I usually don’t even try. I mean, they can pull off quilting-cotton prints, their little bodies are rectangular, and if the thing you’ve made them is an abomination, their cute little faces can help distract. All good points.
But, sewing for me is good too. It’ll broaden my sewing horizons. Or something.
So, here’s one. A self-made pattern. Very simple really. White knit with a braided knit halter strap. A bit of a lettuce edging using a serged rolled hem.
So the front is pretty vanilla. But the back? It’s a little Anna Maria Horner Dobby Dot Surprise!
