The Camille Top and Roller Coaster Swooping Ruffle Pants by FooFoo Threads

Hey ya’ll!  Katherine, from Purple Posies, sharing a recent sew that I love!  I had the pleasure of sewing up some FooFoo Threads patterns for my youngest, and let me tell you...FooFoo Threads is quickly becoming one of my favorite pattern designers!  I am a fan.  The instructions are thorough, and the style is right up my alley...easy to wear, but with lots of cute extras that make the outfit special (buttons and ruffles are my thing).

I have been eyeing the Camille Knit Top since its release, and it did not disappoint.  After the Christmas hustle and bustle has passed, I plan to sew many more...especially the flutter sleeve option for warmer weather.  Who doesn’t love a good flutter!?  I used a soft, thick knit for this is so cozy and comfortable, and I love that I can mix and match fabric - I find it very charming.  The fit was great on this shirt.  I love the idea of the button tabs on the sleeves, but I think next time I’ll place them differently as they are not prominently displayed on the inside arm seam.  

I chose to pair my top with the Roller Coaster Swooping Ruffle Pants, because as I previously stated, I am a sucker for ruffles.  I went with a simple one ruffle option to pair with my classic chambray material, because I wanted a pair that she could wear anywhere, with anything.  My little girl is a 12 month size in width, but a 2T in length - grading was easy, and the fit is so much better than ready to wear pants that slide off her.  

I really love sewing everyday clothes that my kids can get plenty of wear out of, and these patterns fit the bill.  I’ll be sewing many more!
