Matching Sunhat and Skirt

It was my niece's birthday yesterday.  A big 2 year old already!

She's a blue eyed cutie - so I designed a new blue and orange set of fabrics for her, and made them into a little skirt and reversible sunhat.

The sunhat is the Tie Dye Diva Sunny Day Sunhat.  I made mine with a straight brim, but she included a ruffle as an option.

It turned out pretty well I think...

On one side I used this personalised fabric...
Personalised Name Fabric - Handwritten Blue Daisies

...and the other is this one...
Orange Daisies

If you click on the images - you can see the full fabric repeats at Spoonflower.

I made up a special border print for the skirt, which is the Sassy Skirt from Sew Sweet Patterns.

I lengthened it a little - as the skirt is very short, and made it an adjustable waist - I wrote up a quick tutorial on how to do that here.


Then wrapped it all up in matching paper to send off in the post...with fingers crossed that everything was going to fit!

Another good day's sewing :)
