My girl’s newest outfit is quite unique… it is a Filles a Maman pattern with an AWESOME ruffle that stretches from shoulder to wrist across the shirt. And because ruffles are so awesome, I added the same ruffle piece from the pattern to the pants. I will admit, I think myself pretty clever to have re-used the awesome ruffle from the pattern on the pants too.
This is the Petit Oiseau shirt, designed by Filles a Maman, and available HERE (on sale too!). It is a dolman style shirt in knit fabrics available for sizes 12m-14y. It can be made in short sleeves or long sleeves. And with or without the asymmetrical ruffle. All versions are kinda funky & quite lovely at the same time. Very modern.
I made the long sleeve version in a heavier gray knit fabric quilted with hearts and the top of the right sleeve and ruffle in a pink knit fabric. I added 1″ to the shirt length to cover my tall girlie.
Then I made pants to match… I used my handy leggings pattern but cut at the waistband and pieced another asymmetrical ruffle in there. It is the same ruffle from the Petit Oiseau shirt pattern but with both ends finished. I simply started the ruffle a bit off center in the front and wrapped it around. It must have been meant-to-be because the ruffle length fit perfectly!
This made up a cozy warm outfit for my daughter… I hope you will enjoy seeing all the versions of the Petit Oiseau on tour this week.
