I'm used to sewing pretty little dresses and ruffle-y tops and using lots of pink and purple and flowers and lace, oh my! So when I was asked to sew a little something using the brand new Robotic line by Rebeka Ginda for Birch Organic I was really excited and also a little terrified.
We decided on a sweet (can I still say sweet for little boys? yes?) little Military-inspired shirt and a handful of bowties – I cannot be happier with how everything turned out.
Clara even had a great time modeling for me. Well, not the bowties. She throws enough of a fit for hairbows (I tell her it's the price of beauty, she doesn't listen to me). I award any of you boy-mommas a gold star if you're able to coerce your child into a constricting neck-decoration. Seriously.
My favorite detail on the shirt was the little sleeve-strap. I have a few shirts myself with one of those and I love it – definitely something I want to incorporate into some of CBs tops.
The bowties are so freaking cute I can't take it. If I made them again I would probably do a velcro closure in the back though. I can't imagine having to actually tie a bowtie on a toddler. I had to watch like 6 YouTube video tutes to even be able to tie it on a stuffed dog.
And really, there is no reason why this fabric couldn't be used for something girly. I can see Invasion on a full skirt (maybe with a really feminine accent on a Boadwalk Skirt that I've been seeing all over the interwebs).

What can you see yourself making with some of these fabrics? I'd love to hear it!
