Today we have the fourth and final contestant of the Geometric fabric contestants. They each sent and received 2 yard of fabric and then sewed it up! Their only stipulation was that the fabric have a geometric element to it. Today, Tasha from Friends Stitched Together is here to show you what she created:
I am closing up the Geometric week with some super cute fabric sent from Teri over at Fa Sew La! I was debating on whether to sew for me or for one of the kiddos and then I received the fabric and it hit me…. How about I sew for both!! I love the great polk-a-dot design and the soft blue works perfectly for a momma and me theme! I showed Mr. M the fabric and asked him if he wanted me to make him something and his response was firmly, “Mom, those circles are for girls!”
Since I love seeing girls in blue’s and I know how stinking cute Princess B looks in blue I decided to make us outfits. I wanted to add a pretty pop of pink through out because little miss still doesn’t have a lot of hair and I didn’t want anyone confusing her beautiful face with a boy! Mommy isn’t as big a pink fan as the little one so I wasn’t fun and exciting and didn’t add any pink to my shorts.
I made for myself a pair of shorts using the Jocole Skinny Pants pattern. I love the fit and ease of this pattern, and I had the perfect amount of fabric in the 2 yards that I was given!
For the little Princess I used a tutorial I found on It’s Always Autumn’s site. She call’s it her Shortie’s pattern, which is just a romper with longer shorts. I love putting romper’s on Princess B because she has hit the phase of undressing her self. I get her dressed in the morning and then minutes later I turn around and am tripping over her pants/shorts and she is literally running away laughing!
I love the simplicity of the pattern to help show off the great polk-a-dot circles on the fabric. The pleat in the front is a sweet little addition! She added a faux tie on her romper, but I decided against it because my lil chunk chunk doesn’t need any extra attention to her little buddah belly! That and I know how she like to yank on any tie or bow she see’s on her clothes!
We had a lot of fun taking pictures of out matching outfits, and have more pictures over at Friends Stitched Together! Even a couple pictures of Princess B pouting that she will hate that I posted when she is older! 🙂
What an amazingly awesome use of that geometric fabric! The romper is just sooo sweet, and no one will ever question who she belongs to when they go out together! Fantastic Mommy and Me creations. Now let’s review the four creations submitted for the Geometric Challenge.
