Kids Pattern







This was supposed to be Anya's birthday party outfit for last October (spotty theme) but we had a cold snap and she had to wear Jeans and a long sleeve shirt underneath! However we have gotten alot more wear out of it in the warmer weather. What crazy mother makes white linen pants for a 2 yr old!??? {Ermm, the same one who bought her a white winter jacket for this winter! ha ha..} Anyway, this pattern was a quick and easy one from Burda. You may notice I changed a few things to suit myself, i.e. no frills on bottom of pants and no elastic or gathers on the sleeves to make them puffy etc.. I think a sleeveless version in some AB fabric would look nice too.

So sweet! You have done a lovely job, and I love the red rick-rack! Was the pattern easy to follow? I have always been a bit wary of Burda patterns...

How cute is your model??
Love the spots, so simple and beautiful.
Now if only they went to size 12....

Very cute. And the top is gorgeous too.
What sort of mother....?
Meeee!!!. White t-shirts all the way. And they are still white. Napisan works wonders.

Thanks ladies :-) The pattern was super easy! It's actually called Burda Easy!

That looks great! And white can be OK....depending on child. I had one who could wear white to the park and come home still wearing white, even though she played just as much as all her friends. The other.... well... let's just say dirt jumps up and rubs itself all over him!

Love that first pic - cute smile and love the second pic too - you can see her following your directions "now turn around so mummy can photograph the back" White is easy = bleach .. that's why most restaurants have white isn't it :) Come on Rosi-beth - where are the matching shoes ... you being the shoe lady herself .. what's her name ... 1000's of shoes ...???
