This girl. She is so full of light. She of course has her cranky, whiny moments, but mostly she is happy and bright and I love her all the more for it.
I wanted to try out some of the patterns from the Sew Fab Pattern Bundle (affiliate link), so I started with these two gems.
The Bimma Sweater (reg price $7.95) and Fancy Pants Leggings (reg price $9.00) are both super fast and easy patterns. I was especially pleased with how well they fit my skinny girl. Don't they look great on her?
I sewed up the Bimma in a size 5 (she usually wears 5T right now) and it fits her perfectly. Most of the sweater is made from this rad knit from my favorite local fabric shop, Sew to Speak. It was 50% off in the shop on the day I went in, so major score there. The brown around the cuff and waistband are from a random old t-shirt in my to-be-cut-up pile.
I sewed up the cowl neck option (other options include a hood or a shawl collar) and I love the way it drapes. It's cozy, almost like wearing a scarf that won't fall off, but it doesn't get in the way while she's moves and plays. I think we all need to start a petition for this pattern to come in women's sizes. I want one real bad.
And just because I always want to know what things look like from the back, here's a back view for you. :)
The bottom half of this outfit are the Fancy Pants Leggings. Can I just tell you how much I'm in love with these little pants? Let me tell you why...
