First up, another Alice Top, made in an XXS (roughly equivalent to a kids AU size 14). R chose our Winking Owls. Her current love of owls is matched only by her current love of pineapples, but we didn't have any of the latter so the owls win(k).
Like my previous versions, I decided against interfacing the arm bands and the only other change I made was to the length, giving it a deeper hem to allow for adjustments as she grows.
The second top for E is Made by Rae's Geranium Dress. I first tried this pattern in June last year when I made a flowergirl dress for E's half sister. The pattern is fantastically straightforward but man, that pink tulle caused me ALLLLLLL THE GRIEF so I kinda connected the two in a very unfair way and just put the pattern aside until I'd moved on from that little moment of sewing trauma.
And moved on (six months later) I did. I sewed the kid a straight size 10 and she settled on a length that's maybe a little bit more tunic than top. The Nani Iro fabric she chose is a beauty - Mountain View Tata Zuma (sold out) - and is unfortunately way blown out in these pics. You can see it better in the bottom photo.
Both fabrics are Japanese cottons and - due to my tardy sewing/blogging - sold out, but stay tuned for an exciting new delivery of Nani Iro coming VERY soon!
