In the past,the city camp was 'school uniform' required,so I went on a uniform sewing session a few months back.
However,the 'powers that be' decided to make this one casual.
Slight problem,not enough smart things for hot weather.
These children grow!
The oliver+s Field Trip Tee is proving a firm favourite in our house. This is a size 12 in a very stretchy lycra knit.
The Clever Charlotte Finch Shorts are another frequently requested item.
These are a size 8. They are quite a roomy fit considering my Twins wear a size 12 O+S bottoms.
I used a medium weight drill.
Another O+S pattern the Class Picnic Top is a very smart little piece,offering good sun protection. This is a size 12 which has plenty of room and the slighty higher yoke will give ease for a bust.
The fabric is from Tula Pinks Parisville collection.
The shorts are the lovely Finch,again in cotton drill.
The same combination of patterns,this time is shot cotton for the blouse and a lovely soft linen for the shorts.
Different fabrics give a completely different look.
And Elsa requested a lemon coloured ribboned trimmed belt.
Hugo picked a vintage pattern and chose some hanky linen for the shirt and a linen/cotton mix for the shorts.
Giving the stinking hot weather it was a good choice in hind sight.
Hugo is more a shirt then a tee man. This Vogue 8759 style is BullRush shirting was a good fit and looked snappy paired with the Vogue 1753 shorts in a taupe linen.
I finished up with three new pillowcases as I was not too keen to send them off with my nice white ones.
Despite the hot weather they had a blast.
Unfortunately,Elsa twisted her ankle iceskating and is still on crutches and Hugo will have a fine scar where he split his cheek falling minute later.
Both still agree it was a great camp.
Many thanks to the teachers and parents that helped out.
