Pooh and a Field of Flowers Tutorial

It’s a cute, cool and comfortable outfit for summer.  Children’s Corner Charlotte is one of my favorite patterns–quick and easy, fully lined and a blank canvas for unlimited embroidery or applique’ designs.  I’ve made several and each is well received by my granddaughter.

 

This is a size 4, which was required to fit the large embroidery design.  Even so, the tunic had to be lengthened 1.5″ so the blue butterfly would fit under the arm.  Of course, a smaller size could be made by leaving off the butterfly.

 

White cotton twill was used for the top.  The lining, shoulder ruffles and capri ruffles were cut from a pretty floral lawn that just happened to be in my stash.  It was a near perfect match for the embroidery.

Red Kona cotton is  used for the capri, the pattern for which was included in the the Charlotte.

 

This is an in-progress construction photo, but it shows the bees on the capri leg.

 

A fun detail was added to the buttons by attaching each with a thread color in the embroidery.

Happy summer sewing!

  1. Too cute!! This looks look kenit would easily morph into a cool-weather outfit with just a long sleeve knit top underneath and some cute tights. Definite worth the effort!!

  2. Thanks you, Catherine, for this idea. The Charlotte pattern could easily be paired with a long sleeved shirt and pants for cooler weather. The fact that it has no collar makes it easy to pair up with a collared shirt. Thanks for your comment.

  3. from Martha Pullen forum: How adorable! That is just precious. Love the ruffle on the capris. I am making tops with shorts or capris for charity. None of which are as fancy but they can either be play wear or sleep wear. Good way to use up my fabric stash. The outfit looks so cool and just pretty as it can be. What a lucky little girl whoever gets that outfit. The bear is so cute too. Love sweet designs on children’s garments. They see enough junk in life, need to see some pretty, sweet and lovely things. I am still stuck in “lady like” things. They are children for such a short time. Really loved seeing this outfit.

  4. from Martha Pullen forum: I agree with Carol, this is just precious! I don’t have the Brother Dream machine, but I do have lots of designs to use the same way. My youngest gr daughter is 7 on June 30th, so am looking for things to make for her. Capri pants will work for her age group. Thank you Janice, for sharing.

  5. from M Pullen forum: This is just the cutest outfit! Your color choices in thread and fabric make it look so bright, happy, and summery! Did you make that hanger just for this outfit?

  6. Thank you, Ladies. No, I did not make the hanger. Many years ago, I saw these gingham hangers in red and navy and snatched them up. I had no grandchildren but they caught my eye. Later, I saw two pairs of soft ivory hangers. one with pink dots and the other with mint green. It was years before I used them, but now they are in use a lot! The right hanger can add a lot to a photo.

  7. from MP forum: Love love love the red buttons on the white and the capri pants are just to cute. I don’t have brother machines but I do have some Pooh designs I think…

  8. from MP forum: Beautiful!!!!!

  9. from MP forum: Adorable, I love the red buttons too as well as all the other delightful detail. Another fantastic project, Janice.

  11. Thanks for you kind and thoughtful comment. Like you and so many others, I bemoan the clothing and designs for children that are more appropriate for young adults. This design is just sweetness and light, the view a lucky child will have of the world. How generous of you to make charity outfits. The need is SO great and the children surely feel some of the love that went into stitching them.

  12. Another adorable outfit! Your special clothes make me wish I had an embroidery machine. It is funny that you have made a Pooh outfit. I recently made one, too, and posted it on my much neglected blog. I did a little simple hand embroidery on the pockets.

  13. Thanks, Karen. Your Pooh outfit is just adorable! I love the way you coordinated the print with the hand embroidery on the pockets. Now that school is out, you have so many darling outfits you have sewn. That little Honey Bee is a living doll. Your blog is looking great. Mine, too, has been neglected, but life is just soooo busy!
