The Train To Crazy (also = yes) recently had a sweet deal with Heidi & Finn patterns. I LOVE them! I took advantage of the Buy 2 Get 1 offer - twice. So, needless to say, I've got some stitchin' to do!
So far I've made Emmylou a Little Pleated Tunic in the smallest size, which was a 12mo. Her 7 month old self wears size 12-18mo in store-bought, so I thought this would fit her now. It doesn't! Lesson learned - these beautifully drafted, sew-it-yourself patterns are actually true to size. Which I think I prefer. I don't want to give Em a complex... She's going to be in 3T stuff in like, a month.
Really though, my choice of fabric was the main fail... It's a linen-blend pink gingham - screams summer. It's October.
I also made the Girly Little Blouse which came out SO cute! Again, too big, but totally wearable and I made it in a blue floral print - more Fallish. I didn't take any pics, but I will.
Up next is the Chic Cocktail Swing Coat!
I've already cut the pattern in red wool and red satin lining! How cute, seriously?!
