More Sewing for Liddy

When the school hol's hit I realised Liddy was short of trousers.
Her legs are so much longer then the Twins so she has already grown out of their hand-me-downs.
Time to try out the oliver+s AfterSchool pants in a larger size.
O+S Sailboat top & AfterSchool pants.
I have made these for Tilly and blogged the construction.
Lidia measures a size 8 and these trousers are perfectly true to size.

We styled them above for dressy play but these trousers are destined to be worn on the farm only!

It has been too cold to model this left-over-from-summer outfit but, today, Liddy was feeling brave.

Lids has worn the shorts quite frequently over tights

It is still a bit chilly for the fabulous top.

Thanks for popping by,

  2. I think the trousers look particularly great with farm boots! And oh to be that age and rock the shorts-with-tights look :)

      I know, shorts with boots would be awesome.
      I am the wrong side of 30 for that!

    That's the most glamorous Farm Look I've seen to date (looks perfect with the 2+2 blouse)! Well-done :-)

  9. The afterschool pants are perfectly shaped for skinny minny moos! They look amazing with the 2+2, good combo. Do I spy a familiar fuzzy wuzzy blue touque or is that another one? (I remember all that fuzz)
