My Strawberry Girl

I’m still sewing for Penny. Hand me downs aren’t working for this season so she gets new things! I used Simplicity 4203 again. These are the same pants that I made in the last post, this time with another Minny Muu print, strawberries in blue. I bought these fabrics on Sew, Mama, Sew clearance not too long ago. They are perfect for baby clothes because of the small scale designs. Many of the new modern materials are so bold and the patterns are so large that they are a bit overpowering for baby clothes, in my opinion. This top is from the same pattern. What you can’t see here is the back of the top. It has an elastic that gathers the material across the upper edge. So the top has no fasteners; it slips over the head.
It’s funny how patterns can bring back so many memories! I made my daughter Lily three of these tops with matching shorts when she was just two. Hopefully those will fit Penny next summer. This pattern also has an adorable sundress version. I made that for Lily as well. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth out of this pattern!
