Summer vacations are long gone, and I have so many good things to post about. One of them is this:
For the ones who follow my flickr pool, this shortalls are old news, I’ve post them on flickr two months ago, by the ocassion of KCW. The reason why I decided to blog about them now, is because… I’ve an embarassing confession to make…
… I’m a sucker for matching my kids clothes.
I know it’s kind of tacky, but I just can’t help it, I think they look utterly cute when they match.
I try to restrain myself and not dress them exactly the same way (thank God I have a girl and a boy), but I do love to sew with gender neutral fabrics, and make a girl and a boy piece. So, as you can imagine by the course of this conversation, those shorts up there have a matching girly girl piece of clothing down here:
The navy blue stripes on the fabric were screaming sailor at me, so the choice for the pattern was the sailboat skirt from Oliver+S. This pattern is great (as all the O+S ones are), it was super quick to sew and quite easy too.
I love how she looks so mature in this skirt, like a little lady 🙂
The obvious “group” shot:
(I know I’m his mum, but that boy smile just cracks me up <3)
This time around I’m trying something new I saw in a french blog I love, and I think it is quite usefull when it comes to pattern information (give me thumbs up and I will keep it, or thumbs down and it will go away – Thanks).
- Patterns: Oliver+S “Sailboat Skirt” and Citronille “Léon”
- Modifications to the patterns: Added snaps in the shortalls crotch (for easy access)
- Sizes: 7 for the skirt and 3 for the shortalls
- Fabric: Cotton seersucker for both
Now, just one more for the road:
All together now: Ooooohhhhhh!!!!!!
Hugs and kisses, and be aware of more matching post to come…
