First I love the casual style of this top - you can use a variety of knits and even upcycle. With optional bands at the neck waist and arms and two different pockets, there is a world of variety packed into this one little top!
My first version was a quick upcycle of an old Tshirt - I love the 80's throw back feel of this one (I think it is the white leggings that make it - these are the Lollipop Leggings by Peek-a-boo)
|yep - it is a peanuts shirt - how stinking cut is that!|
My second version used some of the new Riley Blake knits - so soft and comfy!!! I used a scrap of quilting cotton in my stash for the pocket and made some pants to match (ummm I'm on a white pant kick, what can I say - these are the new Rosemary and Thyme pants by Stitchwerx)
Now speaking of Upcycles..... Be on the lookout for more info coming about this year's Operation: Project $0. This was my first blogging series I ever tried last year and this year is going to be WAY cooler. I have an amazing line up of awesome guest bloggers, and of course I want to see what you make for your kiddos too! Now Project $0 doesn't have to be an upcycle, it just has to cost you as close to $0 to make... so put those thinking caps on and be on the lookout for some of my inspiration coming soon!!! (Operation:Project $0, 2013 will run the month of September)
