I thought I would continue this posting along the same vein as yesterday…sewing for Jr. Haute. As I stated yesterday, if I find a modest pattern that works I buy the pattern in numerous sizes so that I can have a go to pattern as she grows. You would be surprised at how different a piece can look with diverse colors, fabrics and styling.
The pattern I’m highlighting today is Simplicity 2576, view A. This is a great quick simple skirt pattern. It is also a good pattern to teach your child how to sew with. The pattern has one piece…cut 2….sew the seam….sew your waist…hem and you’re done! POW! So easy!
I think I will make her a few next year in khaki for her school uniform. Below you will see a couple of styling variation of this pattern. On the picture where she is dressed with the red skirt, with a star and crescent, the only thing I made was the skirt and tam. The all fuchsia garment that was featured yesterday, I made in its entirety. It is a mixture between two patterns. Please see yesterday’s blog post.
I LOVE the use of color on the fuchsia garment. It also has a little applique on the bottom of the skirt, that Jr. Haute selected. The garment is made of crepe back satin and is rather dressy. I probably wouldn’t have made it in the fabric in hindsight…only because it stains easily. But, I think she looks absolutely beautiful in it!
