Kimono pj's


Another project from Amy Butler's book Little Stitches for Little Ones. It's out of flannel but I can't remember what the name of the line is. I'm not done hemming the bottom. I was supposed to hem the sleeves but instead I used bias tape. I'll maybe finish the pants today, put Ava in the whole outfit and then post a picture.
I love little flowered fabric! It reminds me of a comforter I made while in high school (I was working at my 1st fabric store in the Carlsbad mall called Golden State Fabrics--I was 15!!) out of a fabric very similar to this with a solid peach flannel on the back (I don't even like peach now that I think about it!). It had tiny lace trim all around the edges. Sounds hideous and probably was (I know I used 100% polyester batting). I've had so many people tell me they think I'm a closet goth but you'd never think this if you saw that comforter! This just shows that it is totally possible to LOVE Halloween, Nightmare Before Christmas and very feminine tiny flowered things:)

I love the PJs. And I remember that comforter! It was so soft. Do you still have it?

Never thought of you as a closet goth... not sure you have enough angst.... I just think of you as a very diverse and talented person. Was that enough of a suck up to get you to make this outfit in my size??? I am not much taller than Ava, just wider. Shouldn't be hard....

I love your choice to trim the sleeves in the contrast fabric! Can't wait to see pictures of her in it!!
