i had been extolling the virtues of double gauze to my friend A for a while now. she doesn’t sew, but she’s my partner in crime in digging out cute clothes for kids and hunting down the latest and greatest exquisite pastry shop to open in nyc. she’s also the proud mother of two adorable fraternal twins!
once after i put together the charlie tunic for the kid, i decided to make two more versions for A’s twins out of nani iro’s 2015 mountain view double gauze in two different colors. suzumi (mostly blue) for the boy and happy free (pinks, reds and light green) for the girl.
i did make some modifications on the tunic in this version. i wanted to incorporate fabric from the sister’s garment as a reminder of their twin togetherness. to maintain a cleaner look (the fabric has got a lot going on already!), i tucked the bib facing on the interior of the garment.
for the girl, i incorporated her brother’s blue fabric as a sleeve facing. i did let the facing show on the exterior because i thought it made the dress look more rainbow-hued.
both the tunic and the dress are a 3T. i hope the twins like their first foray into double gauze attire!
Made by Rae’s Charlie Tunic + Dress pattern can be found here.
One thought on “nani iro, charlie tunic + twins!”
Haha, that’s a great way of sneaking more double gauze into your friend’s life. Well done!
