It is time for my darling Miss E to choose her winter wardrobe.
Her colours? Pink and Grey.
During my last birth I was unlucky with an epidural procedure,this has left me with back pain. It's not so bad,but making beds and vacuuming are two jobs that I just cannot manage. I had a cleaner briefly,but then my twins asked if they could take over.
They have and they do a fantastic job,so they split the money and get a bonus $5 if they don't squabble.
You probably wondering what that has to do with new clothes?
Well,with her hard earned cash,Miss E has bought herself a long skinny cardigan in grey and pink stripes,and is she proud of it?
Thus pink and grey are the colours de jour!
First up were some tops,We found some charcoal knit to make into Hopscotch Tops with a pink graphic print stencil.
While shopping on E-bay I bought some very stretchy textured white knit,it is nice and thick for warm winter tops,so this was selected for Hopscotch tops as well!
I made those up,the flat front ones are Hopscotch tops with two backs.
Next we moved on to a 'suit' and she fell in love with some self stripe grey drill. We decided that the Lisette Passport jacket would be perfect and if it is a little large it will be good for layering over jumpers.
For bottoms she chose the Oliver+s Sailboat Pants which she thought would look groovy lengthened and widened at the hem.
Other choices for bottoms were pale blue denim for Sketchbook 'jeans',creamy coloured drill for a Music Class skirt and,surprisingly,a chocolate brown taffeta for a swishy 2+2 skirt.
Some soft grey flannel was selected for a Nature Walk top(Mums choice,but I am sure she will like it)
White linen and a pretty candy stripe cotton for Music Class blouses and a floral pink for a 2+2 blouse. Miss Z found some orange in the same pattern and also requested a 2+2 blouse,I am very pleased as I felt they needed a 'girly' touch.
Both twins then were very busy labelling their fabric and choosing buttons and trim and I have now have to baskets of beautiful fabric to get busy with!
Next up Misses L & M .....
