My name is Brittney, and I have a problem. I am obsessed with the jump rope pattern. Like crazy obsessed. This is my third view b in a month, and also made up one view a in that time also... It may be time to make something else, though I have one more idea I want to try with the pattern.
This is a medium weight ... can't think of what it was called exactly, it is an apparel fabric with a nice texture. It is a straight size 7, Abby measured in to the 6 but I knew it was a slim fit (at least in the small range) so I figure she could get a little extra wear from a bigger size.
I tried to steer her towards gray buttons, but she chose pink, still cute. I didn't even want to think of trying to match the plaid, so I chose a white placket (again), white pockets and cut the pocket binding on the bias for some interest.
I fussy cut enough to match the pink lines and white lines, some times I lucked out and it was the right pink. I tried to match the pinks exactly, but it was a pain since the pattern is a-line. I was pretty happy the sleeve cuff lined up too!
She seems to like it, which is a good thing since she has sworn off dresses! I have picked up speed with each one, and am always so happy everytime my placket lines up just so. I can't say enough good about Oliver + s patterns! In fact, I finally got the courage to try and talk my local shop to look in to carrying them... One can dream;)
Next up, something for the boy! It's about his turn.
