When I finished up the wedding sewing, I immediately packed up all my fabric into bins. I thought that would be enough to keep me on task (i.e. organizing and packing, not sewing). Turns out it wasn't.
In my defense, I did buy big sister some RTW clothes to fill her summer wardrobe gaps. But the leggings were balloony and the tops slip off her shoulders, yet I can't go down a size without her parading her belly button around for all to see. Not worth it, even if they were cheap.
So today I assembly-lined some basics. Two pairs of leggings and two tees for the big sister, and a pair of ardently requested butterfly leggings for little sister.
I used my beloved Oliver+S Playtime pattern for the leggings. The tops were made using this tutorial. I made several tops from it last summer. As big sister has recently decided that skirts can only be worn with tucked-in tops, I didn't flare the tees out at the bottom as the tutorial has you do.
All the fabric came from Girl Charlee except the pink jersey, which is Robert Kaufman Laguna knit. I used the butterfly jegging fabric for a pair of leggings for big sister last fall, and they have held up spectacularly. The other knits are a bit thin for leggings, so I hope they last through the fall.
Little sister is wearing a top that I made from the same tutorial last year.
Now I should really pack up those machines ...
