Morpho Girl

My parents got me this turquoise and blue sort of tie-dyed tee when they went to Costa Rica.  I loved the color and the butterfly but I just wasn’t wearing it much.  I was going to turn it into something else for me but then, when I was doing my planning for Kids Clothes Week, I knew I needed to use it for souricette 1.  She used to love pink but is now into blue.  I really wanted to make her something for the February Project Run&Play sew along but I couldn’t make it happen. The navy blue cotton-spandex jersey I had ordered to use as a contrast didn’t make it in time.

Oh, you thought the contrast fabric was black?  You thought right.  Before the fabric got here (but still after it was too late for the sew along), the souricette decided she wanted a black contrast.  I already had black cotton-spandex jersey.  Well then.

Souricette 1 chose both patterns I used.  Or rather, she said that she really only wears leggings and tops so maybe I could make leggings and a top? Sound advice… I suggested the Dressage Leggings because I’m still in love with them.  The tee’s fabric isn’t very stretchy (no spandex) so I used it as the contrast panel.

For the top, I showed souricette 1 what I had that might work with the fabric.  She picked the LOL Swing Top.  We discussed how to make the most of the fabric and I got to work.

And now, I’m done with all my KCW projects.  And I’m only what? One month behind?
