It's raining outside, and I am loving it. It has been almost six weeks since we have last seen the rain. It's been promised, but nothing ever came. The yard, the flowers, and my car needed a cleansing. The pollen needed to disappear. For the first time, Nicolas woke up not coughing. What a relief. I also love the fact that we are forced to stay home. I have been so tired, and all day I finally had an excuse to say "No, honey we can't go bike riding" or "No honey, no beach today". LOL. I was able to lounge in a pair of pants, no make-up, and just do little things without having to get into the car and drive. What a relief. I needed it.
So, this is the finished outfit. I love it. I introduced the shirt here (http://kinderkouture.blogspot.com/2010/04/feeling-blue.html) and decided to try a japanese pattern for the pants. I finally can use their smallest size, and oh it was a perfect fit. I love this pattern. I had enough room for a large waistband, no gaping, and the length was perfect. This is a size 80.
I used a stretch denim that I bought somewhere for myself. I decided to applique a large flower (actually three of them) on top of the pants with a button in the middle. As you can see it is a perfect fit. The picture on the top left is cover of the japanese sewing book I used. I will have to check what other patterns we could make from this lovely book.
