I am so excited to be a part of the Winnie Pinnie blog tour for Little Lizard King. I fell in love with this pattern the moment I saw it. Winnie Pinnie provides a modern twist on a classic style...it's eye catching and unique yet timeless. This pattern features both dress a dress and top length version and both are divine.
For the first version I sewed up I followed the pattern and directions as written except for a few basic modification to the skirt so I could include more fabrics from the incredibly gorgeous Nicey Jane line by Heather Bailey for Westminster / Free Spirit. I love how sweet this fabric line looks combined I couldn't be any happier with this pattern and fabric combination in addition to this sweet field of wild flowers.
For my second Winnie Pinnie, featured here, I wanted to make a classic top with a modification. Instead of having the back close with two button closure I extended the two top connecting pieces and created ties. I chose a solid green woven cotton as my fabric choice because I wanted the modification to stand out. I decided to go with a bright green color. I always admire items made from this color and yet I seldom use it. I'm so glad I did because it is so vibrant and fun.
It was a beautiful night and I had the opportunity to have two girls with me so I took a few extra pics of this Winnie Pinnie with the new Star Seeking Crop Top. I'm telling you Little Lizard King is on fire these days. I'm really enjoying how their patterns are appropriate, fun and flattering for such a large age range. I love that I can sewing things for my daughter and her best friend and they are excited to wear them. In these photos the top length, simple version is being shown. This top/crop top is right on trend!!!
