It's taken me all week to make this blazer...each time I sat down to it, I only got one or two seams done. But it's finally finished! And I love it! It's made of some printed babywale cord I picked up at JoAnns last Fall. There's not much growing room in it, but I love how it fits for now...and when she outgrows it, I'll pass it to my cousin's little girl.

DD is obsessed with her "bralella" and learned how to open it herself.










I'm planning to pick up some fabric to make a few more...and just slightly bigger so she has room to grow.  Any ideas what fun fabric might work well?  Oh, and any button suggestions?

Very cute! I'm seeing big blue buttons to match the flowers and her "bralella".

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.

She looks so cute in that blazer! And I agree with twiterpert. Make it match her bralella. (so adorable)

Lovely!  That fabric is so pretty and your daughter looks very happy to be wearing it!

How about tweed with cute elbow patches?

Oooh, that would be fun! I'll bet tweed is on sale this time of year....  ;-)


The umbrella is really a light purple, but blue flower buttons to match the gorgeous blue in the cord print would be very fun! Hmm...where'd I stash my JoAnn's coupon? ;-)

How about a seersucker so that it will be lightweight and spring-y?  There are all sorts of cute seersucker patterns out this time of year!  Also linen (or linen-looks for that no-wrinkle thing) could make a really cute blazer.

that's what i thought too, as soon as you asked the question. BLUE TO MATCH! O:

you could also do something in a bright pinstripe... or a plain brown one with pink topstitching and pink buttons O: <3  or denim with lace. Or make her and yourself matching blazers in something you'd put on both of you. Augh, that would be SO ADORABLE. <3 and then you just put a girly skirt on her and a pair of slacks on you so you're not exact matches haha.

Oooh, linen! I love linen!  It would be WAY too much fun to do matching ones and now that you said it, I'm going to HAVE to do that!

Thanks everybody!
