Mara Meets Shorts On The Line!

Friday, August 8, 2014

Hello to those of you visiting from Compagnie M!  I was so happy to be chosen to make a Mara Blouse as part of the blog tour.

The Mara Blouse was part of an outfit that I had in my mind to enter in Shorts On The Line over at Imagine Gnats.  Sometimes, you get an idea in your head about something you want to sew - sometimes, it works, sometimes, it doesn't......this time, it worked!

I made an adorable, if slightly edgy outfit for my 4 year old, complete with skull embroidery!

I got the idea in my head somehow to make a color-blocked version of the Oliver + S free Sunny Days Shorts pattern.  When I saw this skull - with flowers, no less! - over at Urban Threads, I knew it was a match!

I added back pockets to the shorts, and used my favorite snap tool from Snap Source.  It's simply the easiest way to add snaps - I highly recommend it!

Go check all the cool entries on Kollabora where they're hosting Shorts on the Line!
