How did this project come about again? I don’t remember exactly…
I think it started with me falling in love with Elegance & Elephants “Bubble Pocket Shorts” pattern…
… then I found this funky print stretch sateen at Jo-Ann’s. In a high school, I would have thought it was the ugliest print on earth, but I kinda love it now. Wouldn’t it make for an awesomely funky pair of slacks?
Serendipity at the fabric store gave me the coordinating “Easy Wash & Care” solid for the tops. McCall 5416 making yet another appearance for Gladys’ top and I found New Look 6504 (shortened to tunic length) was a passable “big girl” match for Gianna.
Andy thinks the outfits “look a little goofy”. Silly husband. Trust me on this one. If they are “goofy”, they are “goofy in a fantastic way.”
At least, us girls think so and that is what matters.
Oh! One more thing! I made my first ever covered buttons. They really were surprisingly quick and easy to make. [Thanks, Dritz, for sending me some to try out! I give them two thumbs up!] Seriously, it was no more than a couple minutes to put them together and much faster than going to the store to hunt down matching buttons.
So there you have it – goofy cute outfits for my goofy cute girls.
