Mikaela made the special request for a crop top and high waisted shorts.
She specifically said she wanted the shorts to be stripped and I said, why not make a matching top. Suit dressing is popular this season.
I remembered the perfect fabric from Mood Fabrics and I knew it would be what she wanted. This fabric is Nautical Double-Faced Cotton-blend Jersey. The fabric is really easy to work with. It doesn't have a lot of stretch, so I would probably use it for garments that don't require a lot of recovery... preferably things that could also be made in a woven.
The pattern for the top is McCall's 6754. I cut the smallest size and just left off the peplum. Stripes this size are so easy to match, so this went together really easily.
And for the shorts, I used McCall's 6756. I cut the smallest size in these and I still needed to pull them in at the CB... just a smidgen because she's so narrow. They went together really easy and this is going to be her go-to shorts pattern that I plan to make a few more pairs.
This is such a cute, young-girl look And I can't wait to make these shorts for her again!
