So, today is Mother’s Day so it feels perfectly appropriate to be posting these cutie pie mama / mini matching outfits… From her 3rd Birthday. Back in October… We’re only a little behind on this one! 🙂
Issue 19 of FibreMood Magazine came out last week!! I had the chance to sew one of the patterns ahead of time again, and this time I chose the Vanya. This is a really cool pattern – I was very drawn to the dress option, but I am constantly recognizing a need for tops in my closet so was very excited that this one came with a top option included! The overall idea of this pattern is a figure accentuating, princess-seamed pattern with a squared off neckline and BIG poofy sleeves. The dress option features a side zip and a great side slit. The top has a zipper that is inserted to separate fully at the hem, which I really like.
This outfit has been some time in the making! I originally picked out this pattern thinking that I would sew him a cute pair of shortalls before the weather got cool last summer / autumn. However, as usual, I grossly overestimated the amount of time and motivation I’d have in the sewing room, and I just never quite got around to making them for him. I kept the pattern at the back of my mind, though, and when this lovely Art Gallery cotton poplin made its way into my fabric collection courtesy of Minerva, I knew EXACTLY what my boy needed!
GUYS. I had the pleasure of participating in the pattern test for this dress back at the end of 2021, and hello sorry here I am talking about it TODAY. It’s April. Whoops. However, as summer is approaching, now is the perfect time for rayon and sundresses, and I have BOTH for you today!
