Charles is a princess

Charles_Fliegfederfrei_009

Charles is cool, Charles is versatile and Charles is female (in this case). And, the best thing is, Charles is on offer. Compagnie M did it again. An other great pattern of Marte is going to steal our hearts.

Pants, shorts or maybe dungarees? Suitable for a little prince or a princess? Everything is possible with just one pattern. Looks like a lot of sewing-fun? I can tell you, it is! The instructions are clear and the pattern comes in a big size range.

Charles_Fliegfederfrei_007You probably already know, there was a second test necessary. This one is my first test. So the final pattern is a bit different. I made some loose fit dungarees-shorts. This option, is not included anymore. For my 1-year-old with the diaper packed back is it not that bad. I like it.Charles_Fliegfederfrei_011

Marte recommended not to use the most expensive fabric as the pattern was in the testing phase. The perfect occasion, to upcycle an outworn pair of jeans, you can never know. The striped fabric was a scrap from my stash. I like the contrast, id adds some interest to the grey jeans fabric.

The whole lining piece is striped. A little hidden treasure. The inside looks clean and as you would expect it from a Compagnie M pattern, nicely finished.

What can I say. I loved that pattern so much (There must be a weak point in my heart when it comes to overalls). I had to sew up a second version. I wan`t bother you with more details. Just enjoy the pictures.

As I already mentioned. Charles is versatile. So Charles can be a sailor as well.

At the moment, her walk remember me on a drunken sailor on shore leave. She`s the cutest little girl.

Haha that did she hear.

Back to the pattern. This time, the fit is spot on. I just had to shorten the pants length by a few cm. My girl doesn`t already have 80 cm. When I look at her I can`t believe how much she has grown the past year. My tiny baby. And as I didn`t want to waste the fabric. I just used it, to sew up some cuffs. A fast way for finishing the hem and such a cute little detail when you ask me.
