I don't know about ya'll, but in my world "Fall" is synonymous with "Back To School" - which is exactly the season I found myself sewing for when I flew back to Virginia last month. And when it comes to school wear? You need practical, comfortable, wearable, play-worthy clothes that sew up quick and don't hog fabric.
Which is where Greenstyle's children's line comes in. This adorable line of knit apparel features all the above! Armed with Riley Blake knits, I chose the Lucy Leggings and Bella Bubble top for a preschool-friendly look as darling as my 3 year old.
I loved the weight of this knit! The stretch was perfect for this project. It allowed me to get a snug fit in the leggings, yet flexible enough for a comfortable fit.
I'm a big fan of covering the fanny, so I added a bubble skirt to the bottom of bella top. The ~10 inch long skirt was such a simple addition to the pattern! I followed the same instructions from the bubble sleeves, and got lucky guessing the skirt measurements. I already have more versions planned with godets in a fun accent fabric, or even one with a simple gathered skirt option! This is an excellent layering top, and the perfect base to embellish with embroidery or skirts of your choice.
I just love the details in these designs! Those ruffles, those sleeves! For beginner friendly sews with super cute embellishments, this is the combo for your active little one :)
** All patterns here customized for my long & lean little miss. I cut a 3/4 length with an 18/2t width. Franken-pattern-ing is easy to get the perfect fit for every child!
Yayyy! You found it! I loved the elephants from the leggings above so much, that I whipped up an extra Greenstyle dress in the remaining fabric! First, name this pattern (browse the shop here) and share your answer with the Greenstyle Facebook Group. Winner will be selected randomly and receive a complimentary copy of this pattern!
