Show Off Saturday: Cadie's monkey trap and Ottobre tee shirt

This week I was in the backyard taking pictures of a little quilt top that you'll see soon (hint: Classic Blocks Fresh Fabrics) when my Cadie decided to hop in front of me. But the shots didn't turn out very cute until...

She caught a frog on the other side of the fence. Fun for a minute and then she realized...


that her little fist wouldn't fit back out between the slats. Oi! A real monkey trap! Luckily that sneaky frog slipped out of her hand and she got free too. 

So guess what this is a sewing blog and I did sew that outfit Cadie is wearing. She has taken to reading my Ottobre magazines and placing orders. There is a sticky note on nearly every page these days, showing me what she wants. Anyway, we love that little raglan tee that's #12 in issue 03/2013. It has sweet details like ribbed cuffs and a piece of ribbon on the neckline. Plus the fit is spot on, like all the Ottobre patterns I've ever sewn. This one is little big on purpose so it will fit for a couple seasons. I sewed up this little outfit in Euro knit fabrics from L'oisseau Fabrics.

And you can't really see them, but her matching shorts are from the Ashland skirt/coulottes pattern by Monaluna Designs. That pattern has three really awesome variations.

And now it's your turn for Show Off Saturday... what have you been sewing lately?
