Toddler Travelling Suit, Velveteen & Neon Leopard Print

Toddler Travelling Suit, Velveteen & Neon Leopard Print

I loved this Anna Marie Horner Innocent Crush velveteen – shown here in “Loves Me Loves Me Not Golden” (the mustard colorway) and “Bubble Burst Sparkle” (the blue). It was as lovely to work with as it was to fondle. A bit light for a velveteen, my construction using an orange double-knit full lining makes for a fairly warm garment set (you can see the tweed travelling set here).

Front Pattern: Line-Up

Yes, of course I can line up patterns on the front placket. SHEESH. I finished the jacket with simple patch pockets, lined in scarlet cotton velveteen. Zig-zag topstitch detail.


Here we see the trouser back pockets, also lined in scarlet cotton sateen. Practical? Who knows! They are way too cute! Here you also get a glimpse of the t-shirt, made in a super-super-soft rayon knit. More below!

Little Tiny Flares

… I just had to show you these tiny little flare hems. ADORABLENESS

Smooth-Finish Raw-Edge Raglan Tee

OK, the shirt. This wonderfully lightweight softie was crafted using the the Tee for Two pattern from Patterns by Figgys, a favorite of mine. The entire inside of the shirt is finished smoothly with no seams, making for ultra-comfortable wear. The public face of the garment has distressed-seam detail and raw-edge hems. The knit was so delicate I used my own methods for completion. A little bit finicky, but worth it. No serging shortcuts here.

Neckline detail:


As always, you can read a bit more about construction via the Flickr tagset. I am always happy to answer detailed questions about how I construct my garments.
