KCW Day 5: Parisian Ruffle Top

Parisian ruffle top

B O N J O U R ! Today I’m sharing my day 5 make for Kids Clothes Week and we have arrived in France. (Feel free to grab a croissant or a glass of red, while I tell you about my latest project.

Essentially the fabric used us an upcycled thrifted tee (yay for re-using existing hems!); plus a little grey jersey from my stash for the arm ruffles and neckline. The pattern used is the 4 seasons tank and tee by Little Kiwis Closet – modified obviously to add the arm ruffles and ‘Bonjour’ made using freezer paper stencil and gold fabric paint.

Isabelle was once again being her normal photogenic self and yelled either “Bonjour” or “ Je m’appelle Isabelle” as I took the photos. She was originally pointing at France on the map too… but by the time that last photo was taken (above) not so much.

It was a fun and pretty fast project… and I can definitely see myself adding more ruffles to sleeves in the future.
