An {Adapted} Hanimi : Kids Clothes Week

As the oldest girl in the family, Indigo's closet is the least well-stocked.  I am slowly but surely trying to remedy that, although the girls' Halloween costumes definitely set me back (pictures coming soon).

For this second dress for Indigo, I went with the Hanimi pattern, modified here and there.

I added the faux cap sleeves.

I also shortened the bodice by 2 1/2 inches.

And I made the shirt in an A-line shape with very little gathering.

I got all matchy-matchy with the stripes because I just can't help myself.

The fabric is half square triangles in jewel.

Aw, look how much she loves me.

 The collar is a black sateen from Joanns, I believe.

 And that's my kids clothes week dress numero dos. A hanimi, adapted.

    1. thanks. i was going for a single piece look... but after my experience of having the sailboat top dress - cut in an a line shape - look like a potato sack, i had trepidation over cutting another one-piece dress. ;)

    1. aleshia, you are so sweet. thank you. for the last year or so, i've been reading about us moms getting ourselves in front of the camera if nothing else so our kids will have photos with us someday. so i've been meaning to do that more often, but the truth is i hate have my picture taken. jude took these - and about a dozen more... which i promptly deleted. :D
