Samantha had a very cool event to attend
It took her exactly 0.000001 seconds flat to make her choice. She’s not really a girly girl and is not a fan of dresses, so the Manhattan high-low peplum was the perfect option!
To take is a step up and make it more glitz, we chose this blue lurex glitter fabric from Stof-inc.
It turned out so cool!
The options chosen were exactly the same as my high-low peplum, cap sleeves, regular back, and lined bodice.
Since it’s not really cap-sleeves weather and they’d have to walk from the train station to the location I made her a Seville Cropped Cardigan, also by New Horizons (it’s a FREE pattern, btw!).
I know I’m biased, but doesn’t she look adorable? <3
She felt so great in this outfit that she even allowed me to make a bow for her hair! haha
To complete the outfit I made her a pair of leggings – Peg Legs, by Patterns for Pirates (also a FREE pattern!).
This turned out great and believe it or not, I made all three pieces in one evening! #latenightsewingsession
After she was all ready to go, she looked in the mirror, smiled, gave me a big hug and said: Thanks, Mom! <3<3<3
It really warms my heart that when she wants a new outfit she asks me to make it, instead of asking to go shopping with her friends. She’s 11 and I know that this will probably change, but for now… I’ll enjoy the moment and happily sew the night away every time she needs it!
