Souls salvaged: 1
This is the second time I’ve made this super easy McCall’s stitch’n save M5353 pattern, although the last time I pulled it out was 6 years ago!
Our little friend is turning 1 next week and lately I find myself trying to avoid pink when making something for little girls.
It must just feel like the obvious choice, and I love avoiding the obvious choice!
I decided to make this top reversible and using seersucker from spotlight I made one side modern and trendy with navy and white chevron, and the other side had a softer vintage feel with white seersucker and a little pocket I made from an old napkin in my stash.
The red Pom Pom trim accents both sides brilliantly but it was a bit tricky to add as the seam allowance was minute, it was probably made for sewing on top of fabric, rather than enclosing it between 2 layers as I did here.
I hope this breezy ensemble keeps her cool throughout the upcoming summer.
