otto 01/05 #29

I made this outfit with the intention of the top and pants going together.  But I just wasn't sure about it.  The decision has been made for me because the pants are slightly too big for Moo.  I made the size 134/140 because I was worried if I made the 122/128, Moo would outgrow them before I blink.  She's already inching towards 134 as she is over 128cm.   And the top although a size 134 is quite short in the bodice.  So she is wearing it NOW!   We like our long sleeve tops for winter to be long in the body!   Love the top and will make it again, but I will lengthen the bodice next time.

Pants:  Farbenmix Qumaira (no longer available), fabric from Ikea
Top:  Ottobre 01/05 #29, fabric Flap Happy Asian print from Crafty Mamas

Wow! I've often thought 'gorgeous fabric, no idea what to do with it' and now I see! Absolutely wonderful pattern placement - so clever, so cute. Amazing combination with the top.
