the first spring clothes project is complete!
these are the oliver+s sailboat pants in a size 12-18mo for Violet. she's 19 months old now but I thought this size would work better for her since they are meant to be cropped, and she is still pretty small. And I love them...she looks so ridiculously cute running around in them.
I made them out of some Moda sherbet pips and Lisette chambray. The chambray is delightful. I like the drape, and it feels soft and sturdy.
It's a good thing I made the smaller size, because her waist is apparently pretty small. I literally cut out the elastic size recommended for a 6 month old and STILL had to shorten it by as much as is hanging from the waistband. Not only that, but I also moved the buttons on the front flap so that things cinched in a bit more. Now they fit great! On the first fitting they didn't even stay on.
just because I love her little curls
