Two geraniums.

These Geraniums have been in my head for a while.  I mean, a really, really long time, August.  So I finally got around to making them and am so happy I did!




They are both size 2T, tunic length with a bit of length since the girls are the height of 3T.  I probably should have made a 3T for Elizabeth for growing room, but they tend to fight over clothes (already, *sigh*) so it is best they are the same size because you never know who will want to wear which one on any given day.




The fabulous Justine uses a lot of hot pink for linings, something I absolutely love, so the linings are totally inspired by hers.  It makes me happy when I catch a glimpse of the pink.




The girls weren't super cooperative, so you get two back pictures.  One has a yellowish/mustardy set of buttons...


And pink for the others. 

As soon as Elizabeth saw the one she is wearing she started shouting "my triangle shirt!!", so I am pretty sure that is her staking her claim.  Makes a gal feel good when her hard work is appreciated;)

I have made this pattern enough that I didn't even glance at the instructions, which saves a ton of time, but I also forgot whether the pleats were supposed to go towards the center or away, so I did one of each, ha!  Though Georgie's pleats show up way more than Izzy's, I guess her fabric is too busy.

  3. Both are very beautiful! The fabric choice is perfect for this pattern! I have two boys how fight over clothes too. If I make one a top the other wants one just like it. They are same size too.

  4. Really love both of these Brittney - and the girls are getting so big!
    Gotta love some hot pink lining - it always makes me happy too
    Re the pleats - I've just recently (as in when I made my latest Washi) that I do my pleats backwards to the pattern - the pattern has them going towards the middle, but I do them out! Hey, I like it better that way!
