Lovely in linen and a giveaway winner

February 11, 2013

I have been on a bit of a roll with the sewing lately.  The clothes production will slow down a bit as I focus on my sister's flowergirls' outfits and Juliette's quilts, but I have just a couple more summery things on the agenda before then.  

Here is a little linen/cotton shirt I made for Issie.  I adapted this pattern by changing the sleeve shape and adding elastic through to allow the sleeve to gather.  I also pleated the bib.

The fabric is a light navy linen cotton blend.  The bias binding is store bought.

The elastic at the back helps to keep the shirt fitting nicely and makes it easy to get on and off.

Thanks to everyone who entered my little giveaway last week.  The two winners are Justine from Justmejay and Max from Blackbird has spoken.  I hope you like your little miniature collections!  I will be in touch by email to arrange post!
