I made these little pants and top for a little girl in Denmark who hopefully will arrive here in a few weeks. (Em, look, three posts in one package! ;) I used a pair of pants Uly once wore to go by. I saw a pair of ruffle pants the other day and thought they were super cute and wanted to try them out. I really enjoy making pants; there is something super satisfying for me. Tops, on the other hand, I don”t seem to be so good at. I used a little top a friend let me borrow to make a pattern for this top, but the material was so light (a cotton a friend brought back from India) that I really should have used interfacing and lined it, which I did not realize until I was putting the snaps on. The likelihood of this making it through the wash is slim, but if she grows as fast as Ulysses it will not matter anyhow.
I threw a little jewelry exchange party over the weekend (of course I forgot to take pics). We each brought jewelry we didn”t wear anymore and had a free-for-all. Everyone”s taste seemed to magically align and we all went home with 5 to 10 pieces of “new” jewelry. I had each person put a little tag I made on the jewelry and we set them out so it felt a little like shopping. We took jewelry in rounds, and it all worked out so well I hope we can do it again in a few years when our jewelry stores up again.
