I made this cute birthday outfit for a friend. Can you guess the theme of the party? 🙂
I used the Darby Shorts from Brownie Goose. I am in love with this pattern. The shorts are a cute bubble short with leg cuffs and button tab details on the legs. The are two pocket variations on the pattern. I chose to do the bottle neck pocket. I think that this pocket is more of a decorative feature than an actually functional…but it is unique and is a very cute feature.
For the shirt, I chose to do an applique of ruched fabric strips for the rainbow and since the material for the clouds was so thin, I had the thought of layering the clouds for a 3D effect.
I just cut out 1 inch strips for the rainbow and did a rolled hem on the edges. I then ran two gathering stitches to scrunch up the strips. I ironed the clouds onto some very thin interfacing and before cutting it out I went ahead and outlined it with blue thread.
After layering the clouds over the rainbow. I then just did little running stitches all over the clouds to anchor it onto the shirt and also for decorative purposes.
I like the effect. It looks like the clouds are floating over the rainbow.
Thanks for stopping by!
