The Sailboat top and pants
I made this top many times for the Twins but didn't really sew it for Lidia as she had quite wide shoulders and it can be tricky to get on.
Trixie only wore Tilly's once and I gave up, 'child abuse clothing'
This is the 12-18month size and it is okay to get on but does take some baby origami to get her arms in.
I sewed it in linen, beautiful pale coral linen, using Liberty for the neck and hem facings.
Trixie's signature flower shaped MoP buttons sewn with tangerine embroidery thread for a pop of colour.
And tiny wee gingham bows as everything is better with a bow on it.
The trousers are too cute!
I used Liesl's idea to add a Liberty ruffle to the side seam.
A little fiddly, took me an extra hour but so worth it.
The fabric came in a de-stash from a local woman. I suspect it is very old, being 90cm wide. I don't know what it is... serge? But it took a very hot iron.
I went with big, enamel shell buttons sewn with light jade thread.
I am really happy with the fit, a little bit big, so lots of wearing time and hopefully the trousers will still fit once she is out of nappies (sob)
I am really pleased with this one.
I think it will get worn a lot.
Gratuitous tummy shot.
Tribe's last item of clothing will be going straight to her new tiny cousins.
Note to self, the Hopscotch dress need a very stretchy knit for my gi-normous headed bebe's.
Beatrix's turn on the #sewingrota done!
