This week's challenge is to design an outfit based on a favorite vacation spot or dream vacation. My favorite place to visit is the Oregon Coast, so I used that as my inspiration. Just like at the coast it was a bit windy when we went to do pictures so it was hard to get very good ones with a very wiggly 4 year old.
I made capris since they are perfect for dipping toes in the ocean. I used the Ottobre Designs pattern 'Row Boat' from 3/2013 in the smallest size, because Eleanor has a tiny waist and I wanted them a bit shorter than pictured. It might be hard to see, but there are cute little button tabs at the hems. I just learned that Eleanor doesn't like pants to hide her belly button so they look way longer than what they should. Silly girl.
For the top, I used Hollywood Cerise from the 3/2012 issue of Ottobre Designs cut to a tunic length. I bought some super cute wave fabric with paper boats on it last summer that I knew would be perfect. I didn't want the waves to over power it so I just some red for contrast. I also did all the stitching in red so it shows some all the details when you see it in person.
I love the buttons going down the back.
