I got this LilyGiggle pattern a while ago and wanted to try it out. I thought it would make cute leggings to go with this dress. I am sad to say that I am not happy with how these turned out. They are cute for lounge pants but they are HUGE for leggings. I went off the measurements on the pattern which of course was for someone 3 inches shorter than she is. I added the length to the pattern and they ended up being at LEAST 6 inches too long... so I cut off a bunch of length!!! You can tell how baggy they are, the top is rolled down twice!! While they will fit her forEVER, I like instant gratification! They did look cute with this new little vest but she won't be wearing them with dresses or skirts. I know I need to make this again in a smaller size but right now I am in no mood to try it again!
This dress is a little big right now but I want it to fit all next winter. I used the Oliver+S Class Picnic pattern. I was very excited with how this turned out since the pattern is made for a woven fabric and I did it out of KNIT!! I lengthened the sleeves and made it into a dress. I was hoping that I will eventually like it with the above leggings... it will depend on if it fits long enough for her to grow into the pants! Until then I LOVE it with the striped leggings!
