When I made clothes for the market, I tried to sew mini-collections with several matching pieces. Here's the first one: Two pinafore-vests, two pairs of trousers, one headscarf
On one of my visits to the second hand store I found a fantastic blue, rather heavy coton fabric with animal applique. I just had o buy "a little" without having any plans for it... The placement of the animals on the fabric (and their size) makes it rather difficult to make use of all the fabric. But then I had the idea to cut pinafore-vests. Supplementet with some colourful fabrics that I bought from another sewing lady via sykroken.
|Vest 300.- , bukse 180.- NOK|
Both vests fit sizes 68-92 (6 months -2 years). They have straight sides and can be worn by boys as well as girls. The stripey trousers fit from around 6 months (rather baggy) to 12/18 months.
|Slik sitter vestene på større barn. 300.- NOK|
Vest on a bigger "child". 300.- NOK
|Bukse med løve, str. 74-92, SOLGT|
Trousers with lion, size 9 mth -2 years, SOLD
What do you do when you have started cutting trousers and suddenly notice that there is a bit of fabric missing at the top? Well, you take a piece of fabric with a lion and pretend it was meant to be there all along.
