After Abby's dyed lace tee I just wanted to try it again! So I thought Cindy's hopscotch remix would be the perfect shirt to add a bit of lace... and dye! I may or may not want to dye every thing in sight.
Oh how these two crack me up. This time Elizabeth wanted to stand by George, complete opposite from last time. Georgia kept trying to walk away, and Iz thought she was pretty funny.
Since I was drafting a new size I followed her tute unlike the last times when I used the flashback as a guide. Still have a few bugs to work out, I need to raise the bodice neckline just a bit. It isn't bad on Elizabeth, but it is way too wide on tiny Georgia... though if I had used ribbing instead of just turning under, it would have been higher. For my notes, size 18 months in the chest and 3T length. I made a few un-altered hopscotch tees straight 18 months a while back and they are all too short, but still very much fit around (heck, even the 12m dresses still fit! - more of a tunic now), so I figured if I add enough length we could get lots of wear from them.
Elizabeth's I dyed with equal parts purple and violet dye.
And George's I used fuschia and cherry red, mostly fuschia with a splash of cherry.
I like the way they both turned out. Aaand didn't actually do pink and purple on purpose. I looked up the formulation chart and picked a color, sewed and dyed, then did the next without thinking about the first. Though I also really do like how the two look together, like they compliment each other as if I did it on purpose, ha!
