I finished this top a while ago. Ummm, two weeks ago, maybe? Something like that. I only managed to get pictures on Wednesday. Poor souricette 2 was at that stage where you’re so tired you go all loopy. She even took a nap before her ballet class. She never does that. So I got some weird toddler model action.
Seriously, what is that face?
She did some odd strutting around that I’m not sharing because it looks a little too Toddlers and Tiaras if you know what I mean. I would have been fine with pain old standing.
Like so. But nope. She moved around into all those types of poses that just look so creepy on a child (well, to my eye). I swear she has never ever seen this kind of stuff!
Yeah, this one of the less appalling ones…
PS: The top was supposed to be a dress. I used an old maternity tank top of mine and an old blouse. Mine too. I used Jalie 2805 again. I was going to make a gathered skirt out of the blouse but I didn’t have enough. So a banded hem with some ribbing from my stash. I discovered a hole in the back of the tank top so I added a heart patch on the back.
And yeah, it needs to be washed. I planned on cutting this out during the Superbowl. Souricette 2 had a chicken wing. Didn’t like it. Wrapped it up in the tank top and said she had lost it. Lost a chicken wing. I hand washed the tank but only discovered as I was cutting it out that the BBQ sauce hadn’t completely washed out. Well. It’s in the wash now.
PS again: Please tell me I’m not the only one with a total loon of a child…
I know what you mean… where DO kids pick up those poses? I love the ties at the hem, and the heart might have been to cover a hole but it looks like a design feature. =)
Ha, the heart was also so that she would actually wear the top! Ever since I put too tight elastic in the sleeves of one top, she has been suspicious of anything I make her with sleeves. Even though I fixed the elastic in that first top!
