This is ADORABLE! We sewed this thing from the cutest fabric and did not use a pattern.
I am going to do another with a gathered skirt and fitted waist next, because I have the fabric left. You can’t have too many llama skirts.
I paired it with Mini Boden shirt and footless tights:

Her school outfit for tomorrow Drama llama skirt made by R, With me literally screaming out instructions. We did not use a pattern. I am going to redesign the next pattern and just gather the skirt and add a waistband, Because I don’t like how these self elastic bands bunch #clothingdesigner #clothingdesign #nopattern #sewing #sewingproject #llama #dramallama #llamaskirt #sewingforkids #kidsclothes #miniboden shirt and tights #momlife #toddlerfashion #girlsfashion
I bought a mini dress dummy mannequin that I can now use to show her how to drape and sew clothes. It feels good to be designing and sewing again!
I’ve decided to just sew her skirts and things now- I can control the quality and fit better this way. I love clothing and furniture design.
FUN FACT: I used to do both, once, in another lifetime. I mostly did reproduction reenactment clothing entirely by hand- and I once was the designer of doggie furniture in Oslo before it became fashionable!
