|Hi! I love bright yellow, bright red, bright blue, bright orange, bright green, and bright purple!|
I found this fabric at Joann's, and it's knit, and bright, and the moment my 3 year old saw it... well, let's just say that it will be a sad day when it isn't big enough for capes anymore. Everyone needs a giggling giraffe cape (Giggling giraffes is what is printed beneath the yellow giraffe's).
I used an interesting shorts pattern from Ottobre 3/2014 #12, with 3 pockets, running stripes and easy swingy shapes. The second I saw them I thought 80's gymnasium, so this is her gymnastics suit, a la rainbow brite. I used stretch terry borrowed from 7 year old's too small shirt. They match the shoes. THE shoes.
|Notice the yellow pocket on front.|
I made the shirt out of basic tank sloper with some binding for muscle-t look. She wanted more pockets. Maybe next time. I really like how the top turned out. The shorts are cute, but I think I'd use a firmer fabric for the stripe/binding if I made them again. The lycra knit kind of puckered, or maybe I used the wrong stitch for it.
Rainbow Brite would have done more kapows if she'd had these shoes.
Also, she would have ridden more whales.
