Muscle? ...No, just call me Mademoiselle

 Before I start - Let me first say
Happy Valentine's day.....
I hope you were all surrounded by people you Love and Loves you!
So, It is February and this month Susan from Living with Punks is sharing her Mademoiselle Muscle Tee over at Project Run and Play for the February challenge. I'll be honest , I am not the biggest fan of Muscle Tee's. (even though I might have bought a few for Arthur when he was a baby) I do however like this version especially for girls and they are also perfect for basket ball t's for Arthur.
This is a great pattern with lots of options and possibilities. I was going to do woven but because I have a Girl Charlee addiction I was drawn to my knits. If you haven't heard of Knitfix yet you should go check it out. I will do another post about it to show you all the pieces I manage to get out of one bag of knitfix. The fabric I used for this outfit is from December and I was lucky enough to win a 21 piece lot of half yard cuts by random draw. It had a few blacks and the lace fabric was my favorite. I paired it with the beige and  black print.

As you can see below I made the pattern smaller to fit my 4 year old and also narrower so it is more fitting. I made it a lot shorter and added a half circle skirt. I added a panel of tube ruffles( have no idea what they are called) because they are my favorite and I think it really fits with the lace knit. I also made a tulle skirt for underneath to add some more girly to the outfit. I made the neckline wider in the front and dropped it way down in the back. Finished the outfit off by making go-to leggings from the leftover lace knit.
She calls it her princess dress - It is  still perfect for everyday wear because of the knit.

                                          I had to add some silly pics and there were plenty...

Head on over to Project Run and play and see what everybody else is sewing up for the February t-shirt challenge.
Till next time........
