|All brand new unmentionables for camp.|
The new uniforms have been sewn.
The beautiful Bleuet dress by Deer and Doe.
With a sneaky Liberty trim.
Comfortable clothes for their first plane trip.
Interestingly, its the same vintage pattern.
My sweet friend Katy managed to find a copy too. I can't wait to see her elegant English interpretation.
And of course there will be time for play....
I adore Elsa's adaptation of this pattern.
And she purchased the fabric herself!
We used the same pattern for these shorts.
I just put the zipper at the back.
A light dress was needed in case the weather turned.
I thoroughly enjoyed sewing this one.
Many thanks to my clever friends for their helpful advice.
(In dress making and soothing 14 year old girls)
And we mustn't forget rest.
The Oliver+S Sleepover pyjamas in a snuggly Spotters flannelette.
Zara used the same pattern as Elsa did for her blouse.
But this fabulous one for the shorts.
Rather then have another casual outfit made, Zara decided to take her Deer and Done Belladone dress.
As I made it from a stretchy drill it is super comfortable.
But we felt a light Summer frock was in order too.
I am super proud of my cutting with this dress. I had scraps left from this dress and it took some serious wiggling and a contrast back to get it out.
The skirt is bias cut, I was so lucky to get it to work.
More Sleepover Pyjama's.
(Knit bottoms for a bit more ease over Zara's fab botty)
Now, what about Beamish Boy I hear you say?
He hasn't grown much.
So his Birthday jeans and his clobber from last year still fit.
Just a bit firmer, which he thinks makes him look quite fit!
He also has a variety of kwik sew polos.
I must add I have no idea what he wears as pyjamas!
So, on Sunday, they fly out from the City.
I will miss them.
But they will have such fun!
