For a cousin’s wedding in early July, I made the outfits for children following the dress code without really knowing it!
For Nolan, I made a vest out from the Burda 2012 series, gray and white cotton linen with thin black stripes tennis.
For the vest: two false pockets in the colors of the liner and false placket in the back.
The pants has been made from the last Ottobre magazine. I added false pockets behind.
For Eline, a princess dress was required and in order to give it even greater significance, I added a tulle petticoat home-made model. The dress is made of white taffeta embroidered and adorned with silver sequins. The bust is lined with white cotton.
The dress is essentially from a Ottobre’s pattern, with as always some changes, like the length. The Day, the little girl wore a pink satin sash with a big knot. She was almost as beautiful as the bride.
Now up to the photos.
Our « old » daughter (6 years old) has also been a « little » daughter. I’m showing you my first creations done with my super Pfaff sewing machine (a nice birthday present, 6 years old also !)
For these clothes, I used a pants pattern from the book « intemporels pour bébés », reduced in every ways, as it was really too big ! The final pattern had nothing to see with the initial one. I also added some draws on its sides, as a reminder of those above.
The top comes from the same book : I changed the front to add a « plastron » and false buttons. It can be closed in the back with snap fasteners.
Les tissus sont des cotons dont celui à petites étoiles utilisé dernièrement pour le survêtement de la demoiselle.
Eline is pretty, she is a (good old fashioned) real girl who loves beautiful fabrics, hearts and any glittering things !
So here is the polar jacket that I have made on the same model as the sport jacket.
Eline has long legs, wondering who she looks like (perhaps her father :-))… and a wasp waist. The problem is to find a sweatsuit in which she looks like something else than a bag. Then after several catastrophic fittings in shops, I decided to make her a customized sweatsuit. And a sweatsuit that pleases to her father who has a sweatsuit phobia, who knows why 🙂
Jacket and pants are from an Ottobre’s pattern. Hood and stars are coming from a starry fabric purchased before her birth.
The young lady was happy, her daddy also…and our kitten also !
Here are our kids’s cousins for the baptism of the youngest one.
I proposed to make clothes for all of them, with the same trends of colors and fabrics. Nolan and his cousin (11 days older) are dressed in a cotton and linen reversible vest. The inside is made with a starry cotton for Nolan, and a cotton with peas for his cousin. The pants comes from an Ottobre pattern (with some modifications), with two pockets in the back with a reminder of the lining of jackets.
The youngest cousin wears an Ottobre pants and a vest similar tothe other boys, in striped cotton and peas (like his brother).
Eline wears a skirt in linen and cotton (Burda Occasional model ), a butterfly sleeve blouse and a bolero (home made pattern)
they were really beautiful, and I was also proud of them !
