The Tinny dress already comes with so many fantastic options in the sleeves, collars, and skirt and An from StraightGrain provided an amazingly clear tutorial with the pattern (perfect for beginners.) I loved the pattern on first sight- it's a bit vintage and a whole lot ladylike and that's the style I love for myself and my daughter. That's why I was so excited to learn that August's Flip This Pattern series would be focusing on the Tinny! So without further ado, here's my first flip:
I wanted to go with a completely different color scheme than I usually do for K. She thinks these are 'boy' colors so I dressed it up with some eyelet ribbon at the hems and at the v-insert on the front bodice. For that little detail, I simply sewed layer after layer of the ribbon onto the V that I cut out of the front and then sewed it back in.
I really love the girly striped bow. And even if peplum tops are supposedly on their way out the door, I still love the trend and K looks like such a little lady in them.
I paired the flipped Tinny top with a simple knit skirt. It probably isn't very smart to use white but gosh darn it, I really love the crisp white with pastels. It's fresh, clean (for now, ha!) crisp and summery. And it really is still summer despite the cool weather we've been experiencing lately!
This was a simple flip as this was my first go-round. I have another slightly more complicated one in the works which would be wearable in fall. I'm so excited about it too because it's going to be slightly '70s mod! This Tinny pattern is so fun to play with!
Haha- she is striking a serious model pose above, isn't she?
I'm obsessed with peter pan collars. They are darling!
I love this little ladylike outfit. I almost made leggings with the white knit but am so glad I went with a skirt instead! Maybe I will make leggings for it just to create a more casual look but the focus today is more about the top than the skirt and I just felt like emphasizing the ladylike lines of the Tinny top.
Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to share my second flip for the Tinny dress pattern. I hope it works out as I planned! =)
