This post has two parts, or two pieces I made for Ellie:
Sweater Refashion and Pleather Hand Cut Skirt
The skirt is part of Knock it Off series hosted by Heidi over at Elegance and Elephants.
This little blue sweater is a refashion of a sweater I got years ago, that has been too small and in my repurpose stash.
It got tight having to avoid those stripes in the original sweater, but worked out.
I used the toddler blouse pattern from a few weeks ago for the sleeves and body.
But this time, the placket was in the back with three flower shaped buttons.
This thinner, slinky, sweater fabric was kind of a pain to work with.
I made sure to serge all the seams to prevent fraying, and the whole placket definitely required interfacing for support.
Plus it makes it easier to sew with no hemming!
So together with the pleather skirt, two easy and quick garments for fall and winter.
This lollipop Ellie was eating was her last piece of Halloween candy.
Sad day for her.
