I don't often get to make little girl clothes, being the mother of two boys and all. Thankfully little M has some adorable girl friends who I can make things for.
And one of them just turned three, and loves purple. Seriously, everything she wears pretty well must have purple in it. So since last year I made her this purple backpack, I thought I'd use this chance to make a top! I had some of the polkadots left from my Kobo cover, and a fat quarter of this floral which I thought would be perfect! And I had just enough, although the skirt of the shirt is in two pieces.
The pattern is one of the many cute patterns coming out of the Peek-a-boo pattern shop, the Hopscotch top, tunic and dress. And it provided the first opportunity for me to make button holes with my new machine, and they were a success! Now I'm not so scared to tackle some other waiting projects with lots of buttons!
