Late Summer Sewing

Emma has been shooting up like a little sunflower this summer! She's outgrowing her clothes again (my baby girl is getting so big! *sniff*).

I just packed away all her tops that were mid-drifting on her and realized that she didn't have very many left! Vemma is starting to take off but our budget is still pretty tight, so I didn't feel like going out and spending money on clothing that she might only be wearing for another two or three months. Also, I had this cute fabric in the closet and had found this darling tutorial and free pattern on Prudent Baby ..... so Emma got a new top!

Em's new top
I used some darling quilting weight fabric for the "skirt" of the top, and bits of a linen blouse that I've been cutting up for the neckline and trim around the bottom. The pattern is made to have snaps instead of buttons, but I was out of snaps and, on top of that, there were some vintage bunny buttons in my collection that I've been wanting to use - so I finally did!

Em's new top
Emma enjoys the soft breeziness of the top, and I am loving the adorable little one it's on. She seems to be getting more and more darling each day.
