“Fins to the left; fins to the right, and you’re the only girl in town.” – Jimmy Buffett
One of my favorite parts of the sewing process is seeing my girls’ responses when I hand over the new creations. This one was a sure win, which I’m sure you can tell from those sweet little poses from my Little Miss. She definitely feels like the “only girl in town.” (Disclaimer: I don’t say anything during photo shoots with my girls except things like, “Okay, let me see the side! Yay, now the back!”)
So when they “come to life,” it’s the pattern and fabric working!!
This new pattern from Ellie and Mac is called the girls’ “Shark Bite.” The front and back can be solid or color-blocked. My daughter chose a floral and stripe combination from Sly Fox Fabrics (in brushed poly). I adore how it came together!
Part of the feature of the Shark Bite is a higher front curve and points at the side. I appreciate that the front doesn’t show the belly even with play (shown above); so it’s both stylish and functional.
Here is a look at the side view.
One of my favorite things about Ellie and Mac (in addition to their quality patterns) is that patterns are only $3.85 during the release sale and very reasonable after. I always appreciate a budget-friendly + fashionable company!
