Show Off Saturday: Cadie’s monkey trap and Ottobre tee shirt


Cadie has taken to reading my Ottobre magazines and placing orders. There is a sticky note on nearly every page these days, showing me what she wants. Anyway, we love that little raglan tee that’s #12 in Issue 3/2013. It has sweet details like ribbed cuffs and a piece of ribbon on the neckline. Plus the fit is spot on, like all the Ottobre patterns I’ve ever sewn. I sewed this one a little big on purpose so it will fit for a couple seasons. This little outfit was made with  Euro knit fabrics from L’oisseau Fabrics

My photos didn’t turn out very cute until she caught a frog on the other side of the fence. Fun for a minute and then she realized…

that her little fist wouldn’t fit back out between the slats. Oi! A real monkey trap! Luckily that sneaky frog slipped out of her hand and she got free too. 

And you can’t really see them, but her matching shorts are from the Ashland skirt/coulottes pattern by Monaluna Designs. That pattern has three really awesome variations.

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

    Ahh!! I love love love Ottobre. I have three years worth of back issues from when my little girl was a toddler. I can’t bear to pass them on even though I don’t sew from them anymore. Maybe for my grandkids in 15 years?? lol
