I loved how Hillary over at Wee Wonderfuls laid out her proposed patterns and fabrics for Elsie Marley's Kid's Clothes Challenge so I'm doing the same. Frankly it's doubtful I'll get them all done in a week but aim high right?
Clockwise from top left: Bo Peep Skirt by Anna Maria Horner, Oliver + S Jump Rope Dress (probably view B but still need to discuss this with Hazel), Leggings from Clothes for Girls, and two merino tops from Ottobre 3/2005. Centre is a refashion of an old cardigan of mine. I have no idea what I'm doing with this one so it will be the first into the to-hard basket I think!
The one I'm most nervous about is the Bo Peep skirt because it involves mixing colours and patterns. Eeep! Hazel wanted the brown fabric with trees, and I've added in the other ones.
I'm planning on having the brown as the centre panel, the pink as the back section which will have the blue and pink floral largely covering it as ruffles with some ribbon at the top. I'm feeling rather insecure about this distribution though, not sure if I should have the darker fabric in the front, will it make the skirt look unbalanced? I could find a plain brown to use instead, but that doesn't seem quite right either... Ack! Anyways, all doubt aside, I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into this lot.
