Spring skirt suit for sentimental little girl…
Matched with her mother who works on blue, “cruise” style as requested in March several challenges, Miss gets her blue suit for spring as well ! Well actually yes, because there are real spring temperatures here, long live North Carolina !!!^^
(well yes, I also make a blue skirt for myself for the blue challenge, but I have still not taken pictures of me wearing the skirt, so I do my daughter credit!!)

The skirt pattern comes from the June 2009 Burda magazine… well 2006, I have been mistaken! (ah, what a surprise! The June issue, one more time!!^^). I love the style of the skirt with inverted pleats set off by a little matched underskirt! And the finishing touch-that-kill : the little fly front on the side, in order to raise the skirt and reveal a piece of the underskirt!! (these little details make me considerably prefer Burda to Japonnais!^^)
You have probably recognized my “Amy Buttler” remnant called “Belle” in turquoise and chocolate tones (don’t worry, I reach the end of the remnant!!^^), the underskirt is made with a sky blue cotton net.
Oh dear, what oddness and innovation in this pattern choice, again a instantaneous umpteenth tee-shirt (tutorial and pattern here, as usual) !^^ But this time it’s decorated with a little blue flower, because, who said my daughter isn’t sentimental ??!! Ben or Alex, her heart can’t choose between them!!
A the moment, how difficult it is to photograph my little Aline!
- “Smile at me, sweetie!
- Meunarffffff…. Mmmmmm….”
Mind you, I’m worse ! I have just taken pictures of myself with my “so-beautiful-March-dress-that-I-love and I’m just horrible! I make a face, my back isn’t straight, pictures are out of focus, overexposed, in a word… I just have to start again!
It’s hard a model’s life !^^
PS : the skirt which is pulled up above the navel, it’s not me but the miss who has raised it like this…and as there isn’t any pocket inside which she can put her hands and make the skirt go down…there you are mum : next time you will have to add pockets, otherwise Aline will refuse straight to wear it !
