My redhead turned 8!
She got the requisite age shirt and the black pants she's been requesting (black being her favorite color).
I've made the pants pattern (Neat Beat Pants from Ottobre 6-2007-17) 6 times now. The black fabric is a cotton sateen and a wonderful lint collector.
The t-shirt is a very basic shirt from Ottobre 4-2004-36. The same pattern piece is used for the front and back and the sleeves are symmetrical. Like I said, very basic. But the (thin) knit I used is a fun turquoise polka dot print, which makes up for a simple pattern and offsets the black pants nicely.
I almost made her a black shirt instead, but that probably would have been overkill!
We used to tame her crazy long red hair "Pebbles Flinstone" style.
Untamed hair. I was going to say "morning hair", but that looks more like lunch food than breakfast food.
Sara has a sweet and goofy personality. She loves gymnastics and is happy to spend all her time reading, if I let her, hence my joking nickname for her: Sara Kindle.
