At the beginning of each season, I usually find myself making a few new pieces of clothing for the girls. This time, they got coordinating outfits (cute!!). Lily is wearing a jumper made from corduroy from JoAnns and a coordinating Kona with lime green mini pom pom trim. She loved the material because it’s covered with apples, acorns, mushrooms, deer, owls, and her favorite…the smiling bunnies. It’s a super easy pattern, Simplicity 5489. I made four or five of them a few years ago in a size 5. She got about 3 years out of them. This time I jumped up to a size 7. It’s a little long now (as are the shirt sleeves!) but that means she can wear it next year too.
I have three pictures of Penny to share because she really got into modelling and the pictures make me laugh. I used Made by Rae’s Big Butt Baby Pants pattern again. I have made 5 pairs of pants from this pattern so far, this being number 6. She is in the largest size now, 2T.
I chose the cuffed leg version though they need not be cuffed because she apparently has long legs. I would have measured but she was napping at the time. Thankfully, they should fit through the fall and early winter and given the apple and acorn print, I wouldn’t have her wear them after that. Her “cuffs” and the panel on her bottom are made with scraps from Lily’s jumper.
And one last cute picture.
