My little guy hasn't been feeling well for the past few days. We stayed in today to rest and our usual playdate didn't come over (Hi Erica!) So, I had some time to make a pattern for the leggings I need for the custom Sonali outfit. I came up with a one piece pattern, this eliminates the outside leg seam and really gives the appearance of tights. I even had some tiny fold-over-elastic to trim off the waist band and make them fit snugly. The black makes them look a little Hallowe'en-y but Davina's not complaining.
I made a skirt today too, but I'm going to make more with a shorter waist on them. I put an extra band of fabric between the waist band and the skirt to give it some length, but I don't think it needs it at all. The waist ends up sitting too high. I had stitched the box pleats about 3/4" down but I ripped that out too, it's more flowy this way.
Davina is wearing the skirt with the leggings I made and the t-shirt from the recent AG "Vacation Outfit."
She wants everyone to notice that she got her ears pierced while we were in Minneapolis.
I made some chocolate brown leggings today too. I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow, maybe with shoes, but it's supposed to be raining again.
