Jeans and Pink Beady Top
This outfit is the same patterns as my daughter's red pants and stripey bead top, pictured earlier - from an Ottobre pattern. This time, the jeans are made from embroidered denim (bought with the embroidery at the bottom, so I used a sort of fancy stitch for the top stitching to "match"). The top is from pink cotton brodiere anglaise (spelling?) with white ribbons and clear beads. I also made a stripey pink long sleeve t-shirt that looks quite nice underneath the pink blouse for the cooler weather.
And now, the bad news. This outfit has been worn a lot over winter, especially the jeans. They're a favourite. But the other day, they got a really bad rip during some wild play. I've sewn them up, and the rip is in the inside leg, but it can still be easily seen. Still ... hoping they'll still be worn. She's pretty fussy!
