Swingset Tunic and Skirt

10 Jul

Hard to believe I haven’t posted in over a month.  With all the trips here and there, I have been managed to keep a bit of knitting and sewing alive.

Last night, I finished making H the Swingset Tunic and Skirt for her upcoming third birthday. Since she seems to have shot up so quickly, I made both in 4T.

I modified the skirt pattern to make the skirt reversible. I did this by creating an additional set of button holes, so the tie can be use on both sides.

For both the tunic and the skirt, I used fabric from Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern (the Ohio Sky series).

I found the chick buttons at a local yarn shop.

Here is a photo of H wearing the skirt today along with a top I made for her last summer.

On the knitting front, I am still chugging along on the chunky cabled sweater for J.  I’m half way through the second sleeve.
