Bunny wears // tutus in winter

Bunny wears tutus in winter // Megan Nielsen Mini Briar sweater + Mini Virginia leggings + DIY tutu

The problem with Bunny, is that she is growing up too quickly. Wasn’t she three yesterday? Yes i’m sure that was actually yesterday. I basically cannot get over what a big kid she is lately, 7 is so much more grown up than i ever imagined.

One of the things i really enjoyed during the development process for my kids patterns was finding out what Bunny thought of things. So often our kids wear what we want, but i really enjoyed seeing what she requested. Lately i’m letting her choose what she likes wearing, rather than just putting her in whatever the grownups in her life decide. More pinks. More tutus. Wearing ballet flats 24/7.

This is a pretty good example of my girl wearing all the things she likes at once hehe. The sweater is one of the first samples of the Mini Briar – the length is somewhere between the long length and the cropped length. The fabric is from Knitwit in Perth – and as always, i love shopping there. They keep a great selection of sweatshirt fleece in tonnes of colours WITH matching ribbing. Be still my beating heart! I love a good matching ribbing! The leggings are a re-creation her favourite leggings, which she wore until they were way too small and looked like cropped leggings. I had just enough fabric to squeeze in a new pair, and i’m so glad we managed it! She has loved them. The tutu is the one which i made for the kids pattern release lookbook – and it’s gotten a lot of a love. I don’t usually put her in see through things, but topped over leggings it always looks really cute and has turned out to be one of her favourite layering pieces.

Check out all the moodiness. There are so many deep thoughts in that pretty little head. yup. 7 is apparently quite grown up. I’m going to go cry in a corner.

Don’t cry! 7 is a wonderful age, the age of reason. Your girl is going to start to learn so many new things. Mine turned 14 a couple of weeks ago. She is no longer a little girl, but a young girl coming into her own and finding her voice. Each age has its challenges and its joys.

I love this! I have a nearly 6 year old and I’m still *trying* to make all her outfit choices… I know she would totally choose something like this though – so maybe it’s a sign that I should let her take the reigns :)
