wrap-tie summer shirt

I designed a little wrap-front summer top for Isla. I started at the drawing board with a sketch and everything. Here's the finished piece:

The only catch was making it reversible. I ended up top-stitching the arm-hole seams, because I couldn't figure out another way to do it. This is where it would be helpful to have a pattern. Or, you know, be trained or something.

Navy and white polka-dot fabric: thrifted, a repurposed placemat. That's what I like about making clothes for little ones... you don't need a lot of fabric. You can repurpose almost anything.

Sweetie sweet sweet.

Excuse me, I need to go nibble on tender babylegs now.
