We finally went to Disneyland with our girls! Of course the moment we decided to go I knew I’d be making some cute little outfits for them, I just had to narrow it down and keep it realistic. I made several tops and dresses for them though, so I’ll share each set in separate posts.
These first tops I finished are made with some Frozen Fever fabric my little one picked out; she loves blue.
I used the Glass Onion pattern for the little one in size 12-18 mos. I’ve come to love this pattern because there are no closures! It’s so quick to make, almost an afterthought at this point.
I used the cap sleeves and regular back options.
I finished the hem by serging it, then sewing ruffle trim to the right side edge using a 3/8″ seam allowance, turned it under and top stitched.
I also finished the neckline with facing, and under-stitched the seam allowance to the facing to help it roll under and keep the facing where it should be. At least something stayed where I wanted it! This girl was ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE!!!
The birthday girl chose the Avery Top for herself. I used size 3T for the chest and 5T for the length. This was fairly simple to put together. The only change I made was to use ruffle trim to finish the arm hole opening instead of another ruffle piece. This was Girly’s design choice, as was the ruffle trim at the bottom. I enjoy collaborating with her! I added the ruffle trim in the same manner as I did with the Glass Onion top.
I really love the sparkly pink buttons on the back!
I wanted to add a sunflower to the front to break up this crazy fabric, but she decided she didn’t want one. I did make a sunflower hair clip though. I LOVE the way it turned out too.
I used these hair clips as the base, then hot glued grosgrain ribbon around it (I started inside the open hair clip). At out local fabric shop, we acquired some faux flower heads that fell on the floor. They gave them to us since they were going to get tossed anyway. My Girly picked out a sunflower button, and I hot glued everything together. Lots of hot glue, holding all the flower sections together to the clip piece, and the button too. I let it dry overnight before trying it on her, just to make sure everything was hardened. It stayed in her hair all day, no problem!
Have you made anything with these busy Frozen fabric prints? Those darn pattern repeats… Maybe a peasant dress would’ve been better.
