Little Summer Basics

You can see our porch is still wet from the thunderstorm that just rolled by. Now we have a nice break from the heat for a photo shoot.

Now that summer is half over, I've finally made Sara a couple of summer basics. The top with the squarish neckline is the "Funky Sisters T-shirt" from Ottobre 3-2010-31. Both the neckline and the sleeve hems have binding and the sleeves are slightly gathered.

I made these capri pants once before for Sara, but the waist was so low she couldn't tolerate wearing them. I added two inches to the waist this time around and the fit is much better.

I like all the detais in these little pants - waist darts, side vents, and side zipper. The pants are the "Audrey Capri Pants" from Ottobre 3-2009-17.

I got this fabric from a while ago. It was called something like "denim-look linen-look poplin". So it's doubly fake! But I like it and may use it for pants for myself, too.


  1. Lovely! I love that trousers pattern - I've made Laura three pairs now. I've had to put in elastic at the back even with the back darts but they're still very cute. I agree about the little details - they're proper bigger girl capris!

  2. very cute little pants - I'll need to make those for Gracie sometime!


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