June's FLIP this pattern competitor: Voting time!

I'm lucky enough to have an opportunity to join in this month FLIP competition for the Zonen 09: Charlie. Others competitors made the AWESOME works and I'm so thrilled to share my work together with those talented ladies! Anyway let's take a look and vote for your favorite at France & Suzanne's blog . Thank you in advance if you like and vote for me. :)

Let's start the summer sewing!

My FLIP creation : Charlie's angel romper
The Zonen 09: Charlie was voted by FLIP series fans (including me) to be a kick off for this summer. I love its collar at first sight and want to keep this element as is. My plan A was to make it a racer back dress with knit fabrics. Unfortunately after cutting fabrics to pieces, I'm not happy with the color combination from my limited knit stash. So, I went to plan B : make it with lovely woven fabrics.

From top to Romper (again!)
With not much time left, I digged down into my fabric stash and found the left over fabric from my first post for FLIP' June last year. What will suit for this entry than celebrating the first year anniversary of my blog with the same fabric.

The old-rose gingham which left from June's project last year
The pattern is versatile and great to work with. What changes I have made are:

  • Using woven instead of knit
  • Adding the zipper on front bodice
  • Changing from top to romper
  • Cut the back bodice to be a racer back
What will suit for summer than the racer back design?
Here is not only hot but a lot of raining lately but I can't wait any longer to take a picture. So, we went out after evening rain to took all these shots.

The light is not perfect for taking photo (as well as my skill) but we managed to got some usable images. And the girl had huge fun playing in the park after the rain gone.

I glad that I've changed my mind and made her romper instead of the dress. She can play easier in this romper.

Thanks again Ashley and Emily for create this super fun series and allow me to participate.

Look at that funny pony tail! 

Voting will remain open until Saturday, June 28 at 11:00 PM CST. One vote per person. Please visit here for voting!
