WANDA W.I.P. (Work In Play)










So, my WANDA Fancy Pants turned out a little bigger than I wanted. I'd like a snugger fit. I had to cinch the material quite a bit over the elastic and the bum looks a bit pouffy for my taste. But the child rearing books all tell me the girl will grow! Next year, they should be just perfect.

I think the pattern runs true to size. My girl just doesn't run true to size. But she does run. And run. And run. And WANDA kept up!

This pattern is not difficult. There is just a good amount of piecing to do. But, really, the department stores have nice clothes, too. But none that compare to some WANDA Fancy Pants! So I think the extra effort is worth it.

Thank you, Ingrid, for such a wonderful design! Nobody mixes Andalusian romance with fun and sparkle the way you do!

FYI:  WANDA Fancy Pants from Farbenmix. QUIARA long-sleeve tee from Farbenmix. Rose-colored corduroy from Alexander Henry, I think. Scrounged from Ebay. Velveteen from Hilco.  Jersey knit a precious piece of Oilily gifted from the Gummi Bear Junky.

I love this pants. But you're right maybe Anna's tushi is a little small yet.

So I guess you'll have to wait for the tush to grow a little, but either way it looks lovely on Anna.

Great job in the WIP I must say!!
