Apple Linen, White Cami and Gratuitous Baby Pictures

Now for a colorful remake of the natural linen tunic I made earlier (Burda 7-2010-122). I'm really liking the color of this one.
I might, just might, make myself yet another version in blue.

You can't see it, but underneath all that green I'm sporting this white "Rose" camisole/tank top from Ottobre 2-2009-1. I'm pretty happy with the fit, but if I make it again, I'll lengthen it even more (I already added 1" to the hem) and will raise the front neckline about an inch. It's a little lower and floppier than I'd like which means it doesn't serve its layering purpose quite as well as it could. However, it's easy and very quick to whip up, so it's a good basic.

The baby foot is not included in the pattern.

Baby feet have been busy at our house lately as Molly, at 16 1/2 months, has been taking her first tentative steps this past week. Also in the last week, she's doubled her vocabulary with the addition of "uh oh" and a few vital animal noises AND, to the delight of all, has been cutting all four of her 2 year molars.

One of her favorite toys is this denim jumpsuit-clad doll from my childhood. Why don't they make things like this anymore?


  1. LOVE that shirt. My girls want me to make THEM cami's - keep in mind, MY grils are 23 & 27 (years, not months).....As for the doll, you could always look on ebay for a replacement....


  2. Great shirt and cami!!! And that's one cute, full-cheeked little Baby. I would've definitely bought the pattern if her foot came with it (wink)!!!

  3. She's gotten so big! And she reminds me so much of Grace. :-)


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
