Personally, I wish I lived in some sort of house with character and had all kinds of frilly rooms like this. *Sigh* In the real world, I get to have some cute, but a lot of compromise with three other people that live here. Which is why in designing my clothes, I get a lot of leeway with my fabric and trim choices. For the most part, she likes most everything I make, so I am lucky there. I know a lot of you moms out there have to fight with your tweens if you make them clothes. I do know her general style, which means I do usually hit the ball in the park. Like today, I got to mix a vintage feel outfit with some florals and lace, and she looked beautiful.
The pants from today's outfit are an upcoming pattern from Aivilo Charlotte. She has a whole section on her Etsy store dedicated to tween patterns here https://www.etsy.com/shop/aivilocharlotte?section_id=13225211. She also has kids patterns, adult patterns and gorgeous bag patterns. Lisa is the owner/designer of Aivilo Charlotte and is absolutely wonderful to work with. These pants aren't out yet, but when they are released they will have three bottom finish options - double ruffle with bias trim, single pleated ruffle, and a tall ruffle. And they are super cute. The top in this picture is a 3/4 sleeve peasant top that is from Whimsy Couture. This particular pattern has a dress option as well. You can find it here https://www.etsy.com/listing/116840023/on-sale-30-off-whimsy-couture-sewing?ref=shop_home_active. They are also on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/WhimsyCoutureSewingPatterns.
Without further ado, here is today's gorgeous outfit!
Tomorrow is a half day and also is the start to the Fall break which means its a spirit wear day. But, stop in tomorrow as I will have some pictures of her Halloween Costume which was pretty fantastically awesome if you ask me. I'm only slightly biased.
