I can see why one of the Pantone colors of the year is a bright sunny yellow. It's one of those colors that reminds you of growing things and summer.
So when I saw this labeled parts of a bee panel, I just had to buy it to make a fun summer outfit for my grandson.
When I began to lay out my pattern, I knew that I wanted the labeled bee to be the focus of my garment. Positioning the bee drawing can be a little tricky, as I wanted the bee illustration to be in a particular spot in the finished garment. To achieve that , I cut my pattern piece out of a semi-transparent tracing fabric so I could lay it on top of the panel and see it's position. I know this seems like a lot of extra work, but it has saved me so many times from making a cutting error, that I think it is worth it.
In order to get most of the labels to fit, I ended up having to widen the front piece. If I didn't widen it, even part of the wing would have been cut off. I added a pocket to this curved section of the top.
