I had this idea in my mind for awhile. I came across an adorable blue plaid dress paired with an infinity mustard colored scarf while browsing on Pinterest. I knew that was the color scheme I wanted to go with.
I fell in love with these Daphne knickers from Violette Field Threads. I wasn't planning to buy and new patterns or fabric for PR&P but I broke my own rule and bought the pattern. And I'm glad I did!
I searched through my stash and found these plaid shorts I found at an estate sale for $2. Blue, gray, white and a little mustard. Perfect! There wasn't enough plaid fabric for the waistband or ruffle but I had some solid gray lying around and it was the perfect complement to the colors. These just fit her so hopefully she doesn't have a growth spurt anytime soon!
I had a hard time deciding on the color and style if the shirt. I've been using lots of prints lately and knew I wanted a solid with the plaid. But what color? Gray, mustard, blue? I started making a mustard colored shirt and it just wasn't working for me. I still plan to make it so she can have a few shirts to wear with these shorts. So I decided to make another Skipper top (by Sew Much Ado). I cut up an old t-shirt and and kept the original hem.
Then I used the mustard fabric for the infinity scarf. When M tried it on, she started giggling like crazy!
I was going to leave it with just those items but when we made plans to go apple picking, I decided to make a cardigan! She needs one and it was going to be chilly so win-win!
I found some blue and gray knit and I like the simple colors. I used the Greenpoint Cardigan by Hey June! Also, it's unisex so if it lasts long enough I can just switch out the flower buttons so Henri can wear it! Hmm, why did I use white thread instead of gray? Silly me...
