Batik Picnic

April 16, 2016

Blue Picnic
While i am enjoying Ms J’s toddler years, it is also interesting to see how Ms H’s character is changing and adapting around her younger sister.
Ms H always asks me what i am making and for whom i am making (with regard to sewing projects). She always insists to match her younger sister and wants me to make a similar thing for her too.

After seeing Ms J’s Bagh Picnic, she asked for a pink Picnic blouse for herself. I didn’t have any more of that fabric and also i have the pattern in smaller size.
While she does fit into size 4 measurements as she is slim built, i thought its a good idea to do a muslin first. As this is supposed to be a wearable muslin, i thought why not put some fun detail. The pattern has straight sides and a straight hem…. giving out a lot of ideas/possibilities for customisation/pattern hacks.

Ms H fits well into size 4 but needs length in both body and sleeves. Its been almost 2 months since i made it and though she didn’t reach for it by herself, she never said ‘NO’ when i suggested her to wear. The fabric is light and floaty and perfect for the growing temperatures.
I added 3/4″ for the back hem and reduced 3/4″ from the front hem. I didn’t add any extra seam allowance for the slits.

One more picnic is already in works, this time with added length.
