A pair of pear projects
So now, we have a pair of fun pear outfits! I actually had cut the tunic top and capri jersey pants Gracie is wearing from these coordinating Patsy Aiken/Chez Ami fabrics using patterns from the Fall 2012 issue (#9 & #10). THEN I used the remaining piece to make my top, but I ended up sewing that first because I'll admit it: I wanted some instant gratification.
I finished Gracie's outfit last night after digging through a huge pile of papers that had to be graded all afternoon. I wore my top to school today with this cute pair of golden cropped pants from Loft. Gracie is going to wear her new outfit tomorrow with the most adorable little Hello Kitty boots we found at Rack Room shoes tonight and the matching braided ribbon headband.
I love how this child has gotten into modeling with wild poses. She cracks me up!
She is too adorable - and silly.
I know what she's wearing to school tomorrow...
...complete with sassy attitude!
(***Of course, she knows the attitude must stay with the clothes - she's a sweetie to her teacher!)
She's my sweetie, too.
Schoolwork tonight - sewing tomorrow night...sometimes I wish I had a job where I didn't have to bring work home ALL the time.
