The Canberra school trip is fast approaching and (surprise-surprise) the Biggies need new clothes.
They are required to wear school uniform most days but get to pack casual things for shopping and movie night.
Zara chose this vintage pattern for the short sleeve blouse.
I made it up in a crisp stretch cotton poplin. As it was a good weight and not at all sheer I used a contrast for the facing.
I love it on her.
It reminds me a little of the oliver+s 2+2 blouse.
Its perfect with her vintage shorts
The boots will not be attending camp.
Elsa likes an edgier look. This top pattern was recommended to us.
I made the main top from the same poplin as Zara's and used a cotton/lycra for the waist band.
After initial confusion piecing the PDF pattern together (I am not sure if I misplaced my directions when I downloaded it) the pattern itself was easy to draft and very quick to sew.
Next time I will bind the sleeves rather then turn a hem, I didn't manage that step too well.
To wear with this top for camp, Elsa found these.
I thought I would use the shorts pattern that was in the same packet as Zara's blouse.
We 'won' this lace on eBay and I have some soft cotton to back and line them.
I am not sure they are my thing but I know Elsa will carry them off.
Thanks for popping by!
Bleuet for school tunics.
