My name is Kristen and I have a wonderful husband , we together have 3 amazing children. I am a SAHM thanks to my husband who allows that to happen by working so hard. I love to sew, knit and crochet and pretty much try most crafts.
Being a young girl has got to be hard enough without having to find appropriate clothes.
Lily is 9, this year she joined an Allstar softball team, her shirt was a little large and I felt I could see inside the arm holes. With her age I thought it appropriate to get her a sports bra for comfort and modesty. These were simple to find.
However, in the recent weeks I woke up a little and purchased the American girl changing young body book. I also got to thinking I was around her age when I started to wear a bra. On a recent trip to the store I was mortified with the bra options for young girls. It was either padding or lace!
Not something my young daughter needs.
It is the same thing if you check etsy.
I knew I had to get to work.
I have mention tumble and twirl or mountain ash patterns before. This time I used gymnastics training wear separates 1
Her patterns are very easy and especially simple to modify. I picked out some scraps of fabric and stsrted to cut. Before I knew it I had 7 cut.
A little bit of fold over elastic
And some small bows and embellishments
A few days like this.
Ok only 2, but this is the end result.
I did some shirring down the center front of half. Oh and added a purple one as were.
Simple, not so plain.
Appropriate for a young girl.
Comfortable fold over elastic and my girl is all set for a while.
Sewing these was hard on my heart. I had to face the fact that my girl is growing up.
