Boy Meets Girl...... the Beachy Boatneck FLIP


Its March Flip this pattern time at Frances suzanne and this month is the Beachy boatneck from blank slate Patterns which is a great gender neutral pattern.



Both the kids are very into skateboarding so I added a boy girl on a skateboard on the front panels ( you might notice it is the girl and boy that I have as my logo which in reality is Arthur and Isabella (ARTBELLA)) I used the same method I used with the Lego Pillows  It holds up really well in the wash Arthur's was already washed because he couldn't wait to wear it .


 The Flip:

After I cut out the pattern I ironed the images on and then sewed their clothes on as well as their mouths.
I love the neckline and used bias binding made with knit fabric instead of a lining. Both were color blocked. Isabella's sleeves were widened quite a bit and added elastic to make a puffy sleeve.Arthur's is just like the pattern with the rounded bottom. For Bella's I shortened at the middle and added a bubble skirt.

all the fabric I used are from Girl Charlee


We went for a walk at Lime Ridge open space that is just a short walk from our house and the hills are turning a beautiful green after the nice rain we've had.



I hope you enjoy all the pictures......
