I seem to be on a hopscotch kick: my first three projects of the year have been made from this pattern -- last week the skirt, and this week a top and a dress. But as a special bonus, this weeks' projects have already both been worn, yay!
I was originally going to make J. some leggings but when I gave her a choice of fabrics, she chose this one and asked me to make her a dress. I had my doubts about her wearing a dress in this print but I try never to turn down requests if I can help it. So I traced my patterns and started laying things out.
I only had 1.1m but thought I could squeeze something for K. out, too. Unfortunately (or fortunately if my hunch was right!) I grabbed the wrong piece and the first thing I cut out was a size 7 hopscotch dress back. Since I knew I didn't have enough for two dresses, I called J. in and told her what I'd done. She said she was okay with a shirt instead. With some wrangling, I managed to cut a size 10 top and a size 7 dress out of my yardage and was just left with scraps. It's so satisfying when that happens!
No modeled pics but here's J.'s top:
And K. is always a moving target or a goofball so here are some stellar ones of her. This print is dizzying at high speed!
And following the wise advice of Lightening McStitch, I will take this opportunity to gloat about how little these cost me to make -- $4.24 for the pair of them!
