my olive (really "olivia" but nicknamed this by my son because i soooo craved green olives during my pregnancy) has been the mannequinn and inspiration for many a clothing creation. i love kid's clothing and feel so inspired by vintage styles and patterns. i love that i can whip up and outfit in an hour due to the small scale.
those of you who know me know that i am not a fan of delayed gratification. good things come to those who wait? why wait. now now now, i say.
so.... yesterday an idea
and a bit of pattern-making
a few hours, some green linen, black and white polka dot fabric and more naughty words than i care to admit to later we have this(front view)
so, whaddya think? i could'nt get the model to show it off, she was napping, but you bet your bippy she looks DAMN CUTE in it.
