Christmas Gift for G

I slipped a few things into my 2007 wrap-up but haven’t really shown them to you yet. This outfit for my niece is one of them.

Christmas Gift for G

The skirt pattern is from the Autumn issue of Ottobre (04/07) and is design #20. I omitted the pockets on the back for the sake of getting it done quickly. I finished this up while I was still slightly delirious from being sick.

The shirt pattern is Butterick B4118 and if I make this shirt again I will definitely add length. This is the pattern that I used as a start for the underdress of the Thanksgiving outfit. A further adaptation of the pattern has become the winter nightgown pattern as well. The fabric is by Alexander Henry, What’s Your Number? and I got it from Sew, Mama, Sew. I had hoped to finish a cap to match but it just didn’t happen before Christmas. Instead it will become part of a Valentine’s gift — it’s already cut out so amazingly I have a head start, well sort of.
