More Oliver+S, this time the Field Trip tee and trousers.
The cargoes have lots of pockets for treasures.
As Tildy is so slight I got some advice from the Girls in the O+S forum on sizing.
The body fit is spot on (18-24 month) but they could have been longer (4T)
I may add a ribbing cuff to the ankle if she shoots up.
I forgot the neck band is quite generous on the Field Trip tee.
I had trimmed and topstitched by the time I remembered, grrrrr.
I usually measure the finished neck and cut my ribbing to 2/3rds the length and then check the fit over the child's head.
My sewing Gal-Pal Cindy, suggests popping it over your own head!
I was not sure the knit would cope with unpicking so I folded the excess and made a wee flap with some poppers.
To add length I drafted the size 4T length onto the size 18-24 month size.
This way I can re-use the 18-24 month size.
Now when I drafted the front leg pieces something went a bit pear shaped.
No a huge deal, I drafted and cut an extra band for the bottom.
A pretty good save if I do say so myself!
Just the job for checking the ewes.
Up close and personal.
Cleaning Dad's hand piece
Missed a bit, Daddy.
Me and my mates.
That's the days work done.
Just time for a quick tree climb.
Then head home to Trixie.
