It's pony-tail weather now, which makes Elsie look like such a big kid. She loves this shirt a lot. She's more of pants girl than a dress girl, so it's great that most O&S dress designs come with tunic or blouse options. I loved putting this one together too. It didn't take too long, but it's a unique construction that lends itself to really cool color blocking options.
The bird border fabric is from Carrie Bloomston's first line Collage. I actually just saw her new Paint collection in person at Quilt Market over the weekend, and it's just as great as the first! There are some really cool prints that can be used uniquely in garment sewing. The yoke fabric isn't quite this dark in person and it's a Studio E Peppered Cotton. The tunic is sewn up in a size 3.
Thanks so Liesl for sending me this pattern to try. As always, it was a joy to sew! You can pick yours up online here, or if you are local we carry the full line of paper patterns at Sewn Studio.
Come back next week to see what I made for both kids with Rae's beautiful Lotus Pond fabric. After that, I really need to let the kids wear out their summer hand-me-downs and focus on finishing some quilting projects AND sewing more clothing for me. I've actually just finished up 2 Liesl & Co Metro tshirts that I love, so hopefully I can get pictures to share those soon too.
