I have three posts of the clothes I made but I am not going to tell you about them till I get up to them :-)
Now that it fits it is beautiful. I love all the details in it like the extra rosebuds on the straps and on the buttons. Overall a big success if not very sun safe.
Then there are these ultra cuts shorts.They are the Oliver + S class picnic shorts. You can tell our weather here before we left was very cold by the accompanying shirt but if you can ignore that you can see the cuteness.
This is my lad modelling. I love these pants. They were a lot of work but I finished them. They are Blank Slate's Costal Cargo's. I made two pairs with different fabric and they couldn't have looked more different. The boys really like wearing them and so far they have withstood the wear test :-).
Of course it wasn't just the pants. Their Dad always wears a shirt over his t-shirt and I thought it would be ultra cute if the boys copied him with a tropical feel. This is a sample of some of the shirts that we made them (my Mum made some and together we got a little carried away). There were 10 shirts. This is just a few. They came from a book Vintage Style for Kids. Things never seem to go according to plan from this book. I always seem to need to tweak something. This time it was the length of the shirts. My boys are an average size but these have had an extra inch to the length.
So this is the start. Hopefully everything is running smoothly for me and I will bring you the next installment soon...
