The Julia sweater: pattern tour by you day 2


Today’s pattern tour participant is one of my personal favourites! Just because I think Laurence’s style is so perfect and totally not what I would come up with myself! I really had difficulties to delete one picture from the series she had send me, just to be able to make a good lay-out. What a task! Laurence has a relative new blog that’s called Ptits Monstres, one I definitely  have to add to my reading list! Done!

A few weeks ago, I made some baggy pants for my 4-years old girl. I used a really light fabric with a floral print. Not without risks, I must admit, because she usually prefers dresses. But this time, I wanted her to have something comfortable yet stylish to go out and play. And she loves it! But what to wear with these new pants, when all she has is a wardrobe full of dresses? Then I came across the Julia sweater pattern. Eureka!

Finding the right fabric for the sweater was actually easier than expected. When I saw this striped jersey, I knew we had a winner. I just love the combination of the flowers and stripes and the colors match perfectly. The back is in one piece, but for the front of the sweater I used the fabric of the pants in just one sleeve only.

To be sure my little fashionista will be as convinced as I am about this cool, urban-chic-meets-comfortable-playwear look, I added a touch of pink -of course- in the sweater as well at the edge of the pockets of the pants. Did you notice the matching sunglasses? Now she is ready to rule the playground in style!
