I always mean to do this,make a selection of mix and match outfits and do a photo shoot.
I wanted to do this with Liddy in her Clever Charlotte clothes. (Now she has grown and I missed the boat).
Not this time....
(Groovy music plays)
First up we have the Ayashe blouse by Figgy's in a crisp white poplin. The facings have been reversed and trimmed with vintage cotton lace. The bottom casing is threaded with a double sided satin ribbon;left un-gathered for this ensemble.
This sweet blouse was inspired by the well renowned artisan Sarvi.
It is worn with the versatile Sunki leggings in a charcoal cotton/lycra knit
The back has delicate shaping to the sides and features pretty gathers at the lined yoke.
With a gentle tug to the ribbon draw string the blouse becomes blouson. Paired with a straw hat it has a distinctly 50's feel with the leggings looking every bit as snappy as slim line pants.
Next we have an Ayashe skirt in a linen/silk/cotton cloth with mother-of-pearl buttons.
A slightly more demure look but still very functional for play.
A change of shoes and a lovely hat and we are ready for a baby-chino with a groovy godmother.
Moving quickly on.
For cooler weather try the long sleeve Ayashe. This version features elastic roulette closures with heart shaped mother-of-pearl buttons.
Off course the long sleeve blouse looks equally stylish with the leggings.
Taking a step back to the traditional look,worn with white knee highs and Mary-Janes,the Ayashe is both pretty and snappy.
Strike a pose!
Granny has gone home and it is time for a party.
With a quick change of shoes and hair accessories its time get your groove on.
Doesn't everyone raid the chook shed for notions,Dahling?
We shall take an intermission now for refreshments,
And we shall return soon with more wonderful clothes.
