Georgia, dear Georgia. She is so hard to photograph lately.
She tried oh so hard to get back in the house. For some reason she can open the door to go out, but not to get back in.
Though every now and then I can manage a semi-decent shot. (would have been a good shot if she had been looking, but she knows where the camera is and seems to avoid looking that direction).
So she spent her time running from pot to pot trying to pick a flower.
And I caught her red-handed.
But she's lucky she's so cute, she didn't get in trouble (plus the trailing verbena grows like a weed! A pretty weed though).
The pants look very linty in this picture for some reason. Hm.
Anyways, the pants. They are the Oliver + S After-school pants size 18m lengthened to a 3T. I added the ruffle to the pocket, but not the back of the pants. While cute, the material was hard to gather so I didn't bother trying again.
I cut all my pieces out then used a pencil eraser to randomly stamp silvery metallic dots on the fabric. I'd like to say I purposefully left the yoke plain, but the truth is I misplaced my painted yokes. Sigh. That's okay though, I kind of like it plain.
I managed to mess up pretty bad though. Instead of sewing the angled piece correctly (the point towards the back) I thought I was smart enough, since I had made them a few times before (one, two, three, four times before) to not need the instructions for that step. I realized I had messed up after sewing the seam, serging then two rows of topstitching- on both sides. Lesson of the day, notches make a difference! I didn't bother notching since I was lengthening and didn't know if they would line up anyways. Oh, and read your instructions;) So because of my mistake the pants ended up narrower than they would have and only George can wear them (believe me, Izzy tried to get them on). The yoke is a little messed up, but they are still wearable.
I was unsure about the paint as the pieces were all laid out on my counter top, but I am happy with how they turned out. She looks so cute running around in them.
