I've been working on some baby clothes as gifts for a couple of couples who had little girls recently!
Made from scraps of Ave. 51, and an ERMIE S/S print that didn't make it into the collection.
I made a version of this kimono before. It's a quick & satisfying little project.
Lest my readers start to think that I'm perfect (I am FAR from that dear readers...the blogging world can be so darn edited sometimes) I wanted to show you a little patchwork I had to perform the kimono: I must have cut through the shoulder of the garment when I was pinking some raw edges of the seams- resulting in a tiny hole, repaired with a teeny, tiny patch. I think it's probably the smallest, cutest patch I have ever laid eyes on. I didn't want to scrap the whole project just because of a little hole. Plus, the repair reminds me of boros, which is appropriate to this garment, so I like that.
The other images are of perhaps the most psychedelic baby dress in existence (the recipients parents are artists, so I don't think they'll object) ! Shades of Morris Louis, no?
I would totally wear that dress if were in my size! In fact: I often feel that way about children's clothing. For instance, perusing the the Crewcuts catalogs- I usually find myself wishing that they made the featured styles in adult sizes. I'm not sure what that says about me, but there you have it.
I guess I am still "little" at heart!
