I was very excited to be paired up with Anne of Sofilantjes for the Designer Pattern Swap. I love sewing kid friendly, knit garments, and her patterns are just that! I chose the Otium Top and paired with with the free Liv Skirt.
My daughter chose the Hello Kitty print herself. I normally don’t buy character prints, but she saw it at our local fabric store, Marshall Fabrics, and told me that it was ‘the most beautiful fabric ever’! And being such an amazing mom, I had to buy it for her 🙂
The Otium top includes several views; I chose the bow back and the 3/4″ length sleeves. It took some convincing for my daughter to wear it the right way (she insisted it would be prettier with the bow in the front!).
The Liv skirt is sewn form a stretch sweatshirt fleece. It was such a fast sew, and the pockets were a huge hit. If you haven’t tried a Sofilantjes pattern before, this is a great way to try them out!
I completed the outfit with a pair of fleece lined leggings and some grey fashion boots.
Thank you Anne for such great patterns; my daughter is so happy with the outfit! She is generously offering 30% off the Otium with the code: PatternSwap30
