Quiara – on white??

I’m still questioning whether this was a good idea, but I didn’t have the right color red to match the skirt I made Zoe for Valentine’s Day, so I went with the white.

This is the tunic length version with a hood and without the cap sleeves. Size 122/128 without a seam allowance added. Since she’s wearing it with a skirt, I think the shorter length might have been better.

This was the first time I’d done machine applique and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. It’s a bit fiddly, but other than that, not terribly difficult. Applique is from Lynnie Pinnie, I left out the circle in the middle of the hearts. A layer of Sticky+ with tearaway underneath it for the applique. Lots of ric-rac and lettuce edging for “curly” hems as Zoe says.


A Redondo for Valentine’s Day

This is one of those patterns that looks a lot more difficult than it is. It sat on my shelf for months before I finally tried it. This is a size 122/128, with 20.5″ of 3/4″ non-roll elastic in the waist. The pattern calls for 5 panels, but if you use two fabrics, you’ll want to add a sixth panel so you can alternate them around the skirt. A simple rolled hem completes this cute twirly skirt.
