The funny thing is that when the pattern was first released I did not even consider sewing it in knit. I was too intimidated by stretchy fabric. Fast forward a couple of years and now I can't get enough of knits!
I love the back of this top. Yes I did slightly pull it out of shape (I still have so much to learn!) but it actually is not noticeable when Baby L is moving.
This is the last post when I can refer to my little girlie as a baby. A few weeks earlier she took her first steps however decided that walking was over-rated and crawling would get her places quicker. With less falling, too. Shortly after these photos were taken she changed her mind and started walking. I now have a toddler in the house! A Toddler with a capital T nonetheless!
This little girlie is a tireless explorer. She does exactly what one would expect of a curious energetic little person. And she does it with so much passion!
I might be crazy, but I adore this stage! Despite the mess and the fact a few things were strategically placed in the toilet, toddlerhood is such an amazing period. While Baby L is busy learning about the world, we are discovering more about her personality.
I made a pair of Satya shorts also by Jennuine design to go with the LOL swing top. While Baby L is a keen explorer and interior designer, her modelling skills require some practice. I tried my best to take a few decent photos of the shorts, but it was practically impossible. You can see more details in this post on Instagram. The pattern offers great options. I made regular fit shorts with front pockets only. I used denim chambray for the shorts and printed poplin for the pockets and waistband lining, both from Spotlight.
