Ahnalin has fallen in love with the Modkids Sydney pattern and
has been begging me to sew it up for her.
As Autumn is just around the corner,
and Ahnalin refuses to wear jeans,
I thought I would sneak in some denim another way.
We paired the denim, which has been in my stash for quite some time,
with Patty Young's Double Border Daisy in Lime
And being me, I had to add some rick rack.
Ahnalin is crazy about the hood!
So we got lots of goofy pictures!
Oh those eyes just capture me!
(And did I mention that 5 years ago today, she became our baby!)
But she was a bit frustrated that she could not find flowers
in our yard that matched the fabric.
As Ahnalin struggles with sensory issues, I have to line
everything she wears.
This pattern has an unlined bodice and that would not
do for my girly.
So, I just made a lining using the same front and back pattern
pieces, and captured the hood in between those layers.
I also added a button and used fold-over-elastic to make a button loop.
Ahnalin is long and thin, so I cut her dress in a size 5 for
width and a size 6 in length.
The size 6 hits her right at the knee.
I LOVE this pattern and plan to make more for my girly girl!
