hat and scarf Rosa's own... and what about those fantastic boots!
The pink sweat top is the hoodie I made recently from the world's second ugliest piece of fabric, and the skirt is one of the Oliver + S badminton skirts I have sewn for Rosa. Although it is well hidden, the white t-shirt underneath is also one of my creations: another Ottobre workshop 301 t-shirt.
I whipped this little item up from a remnant sister N gave me while I was staying with her in February
This was a fun, textured fabric which looked a little like knitting with cables and fancy ribbing
I love this pattern. It is quick to sew and can be dressed up or down depending on the fabric choice.
Another top I made for Rosa in the summer was the Oliver + S puppet show tunic. I decided to try something just a little different with this item: l wanted to make the yoke in the same fabric but thought that it needed something to give it a bit of a lift....
I used a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton and made the yoke from a piece of fabric I had embroidered a floral grid pattern in a variegated thread. I used the same thread for the topstitching
Oops, I should have ironed a little more carefully at the yoke and front!
It was a little awkward trying to match the embroidery on the back pieces!
This tunic was a bit too big for Rosa when she first wore it but hopefully she will still be able to wear it next summer.
