I made a new button down shirt to wear with my suit. The pattern in JJ blouse pattern. I also made a matching pair of pants for my daughter.I usually think that matching is lame, but I couldn’t resist..I will allow myself one lame but cutesy matching outfit!
Pattern: JJ pattern – I’ve used this pattern for a couple of times in the past and I like the fit of the bodice. One modification I made this time is the collar – I’m not a big fan of stand-up collars, as I think I look like Kim Jong Il. I generally avoid any clothes with high necklines, like turtle necks, since I think they make my round face look even more round than usual. So instead of using the stand-up collar pattern of JJ, I drafted regular collar to replace it. Oh I also omitted the ruffles… I’m not a big fan of ruffles.
Pattern: Kabocha Pants from Handmade no kokoro (Japanese site), free download! (check out more details in my blog)
“Kabocha” means “pumpkin” in Japanese. The name of these pants are pumpkin pants, since the shape resembles a pumpkin:) The pattern is for 7 month olds and up, but I made them for my 1 1/2 month old in as much as my baby seems to be growing so fast.
cotton and poly mix, buttons, elastic band
