I stopped all other sewing yesterday to make a present for Izzy, who's first birthday it is today, and who's party we went to earlier.
Izzy is a classy one year old, so the average present just wouldn't do....
I knew which fabric I was going to use straight away, some of the precious Liberty print that was part of "the best Christmas present in recent history" from my Aunty Jane. Izzy wears cute prints and cardigans so I decided on a sleeveless top. I couldn't find any decent (simple!) patterns so I kind of made one up by tracing round a top of Felix's and cutting the sleeves off. I added a basic box pleat at the front and a vintage narrow bias binding (charity shop bargain 10p!).
It fits Felix perfectly, but darn it, the child wouldn't model for me, so this is the best picture I could get!
And here are Izzy and Felix at the party....and yes that is some kind of food stuck to Felix's foot, she's a classy lady too!
