Boden Kids Inspired Top

The top was totally inspired by this dress from Boden Kids ~


I'd already made a pair of black 'n white checked leggings. So I pulled some black ponte knit scraps and Vogue 8086 which I've used for Miss Sammy before, to make a top to go with the black 'n white gingham Burda leggings. 

After gathering all of my supplies, I kinda went my own way.  There is stitching down the front because I had to make a front seam due to my use of scraps. The topstitching appeared to highlight the seam. Then I added it to the center back seam to tie it all together. The pockets are the only thing that are similar and there are no sleeves. I went back and forth over adding sleeves and then decided not to. Sammy is wearing a top from Old Navy under the top.

Here are a few pictures of Miss Sammy wearing her top and leggings ~





This ended up being Samantha's favorite outfit.  She even jumped up on the piano bench and asked me to take her picture there. Sammy was the one I worried about the most when taking pictures and you will see that she was the easiest one to shoot. Way easier than her sister!

There are a few more back to school sewing posts. I've condensed them and highlighted the pieces that I'm going to do specific pattern reviews for. So, one more time if kids clothing isn't for you...check back in about two weeks. I will have some pics of me wearing me-made garments then.

Also isn't my Sammy the cutest!

...as always more later!

  6. Your grandchildren are gorgeous and they look so happy. I used to love sewing for my girls when they were little because it took so little fabric, was quick and so many pretty styles in my topkids ( like burda mags ) . I think they are very lucky to have such a nice grandma. Do they play with your fabric scraps and buttons ? I remember loving looking at Mum's button jar.

  12. If there is such a thing as beyond adorable, it describes her. Love the combination you've created for her. It looks like she does too. Look forward to seeing what else you've made for back to school.

  13. It was immediately obvious that she loves to ham it up for the camera. Taking pictures of my son was a pita, but my dd? Like Sammy, she still loves the camera and like Sammy, the camera loves her. All of the outfits I've seen are adorable and this one does stand out.
