Here I am at the bitter end of kids clothes week, furiously hemming to get the kid in the photo before the last rays of sun are gone. I’m happy with this top, and so is Eva. I’m pretty confident that it will get worn, only because the challenge of this kcwc was as much in conversation and communication as it was in sewing.
I used a Japanese craft book (isbn 9784834725568), one that I’ve always thought was a little young-looking for me, but bought anyway. Japanese craft book patterns tend to be boxy, and I always need to add hip space to them for me, but this worked really well for my in-between girl. I made an adult small pattern without adding any seam allowances, which I suppose might equal and adult extra small.
I love the gray and the pin tucks, and the girl loves the colors she got to pick, the layered look, and the sheep pocket. (Of course I love the sheep pocket too.)
