So, I wont bore you with the annoying details about how we signed on the house on Friday, but still haven't recieved the keys... Grrr. I am pretty angry about it, and used my anger to go throw boxes around in the garage looking for my box of cotton fabric. I have been enjoying sewing with knit, but I had a craving for some good ol' cotton.
I found a box with some of my cotton, not really the box I was looking for, but it worked, and pulled out a pattern I haven't tried before. Oliver + S After School pattern has been on my want to sew list for a while, and now that the weather is cooling down I decided it was time. I checked out flickr and blogs (like I always do the first time around) and noticed comments that it could be longer. Knowing my tall girls, and my hope they don't outgrow their clothes too quickly, I added some length. Though I am thinking it could use even more, maybe it is just big twin's belly... I haven't tried it on tiny twin just yet.
I had a small amount of the bird fabric, and a bit more of the peach from a skirt I made Abby a while back, so I decided to combine them for a unique look. I made size 12m on the chest with 4t length, though I may go longer next time, per my personal prefrence.
I tried to put her next to the pretty flowers and bushes, but then she spotted her siblings that snuck outside within thirty seconds when I asked them not to...
But I cornered her next to the weeds.
I didn't realize there were also buttons in the back until I traced off the pattern. I kinda like the look. Chest fits great, sleeves perfect length, cute style, one to make again.

Well, hello cutie pie!
I definitely think big twin's belly made the difference in the fit. I think it may end up being tiny twin's shirt...
