These three pieces are quick to sew and create a perfect outfit for the beach, the park, or the playground. Look for this pattern release in other sizes next month!
Picnic Play- Sewing Pattern from Oh Sew Kat!
Look closely at Joss’ top. I cut the white fabric and lining as usual, then added a square of lace (Larger than the pieces) between the right sides before I sewed it together. Once it was sewn, I trimmed it to the same size as the top and carefully turned it to give a soft, pretty lace overlay. Even such a simple pattern can offer a surprise design element.
