One hour? Not exactly. More like 40 minutes. Forty very interrupted minutes! Still, I managed to trace the popular Hilda-Tilda pattern from Ottobre 6/2007 (#27) in two sizes! I didn't get to add the seam allowances yet.
Neither of my kids need much in the way of clothes. They could each use a pair of shorts, but they're set in the t-shirt and jeans department. So I decided to start with swimming cover-ups. His and hers. Pretty much exactly like LiEr at Ikatbag just did (great timing!) only I'll be using Ottobre pattern pieces. And making a few changes a la LiEr since I like how she did the lined hood and the neck slit in front.
I don't have fabric picked out yet. I have plenty of options for Miss M, but I'm limited on my choices for Little Guy. I guess I'll have to decide tomorrow!
It'd be nice if the postman would deliver the new issue of Ottobre tomorrow so I can trace a pair of shorts.
