Back to Tilly,
My big brother lent me his posh lens for 6 months and it is time to send it back.
Better get some photos done.
Part two of Matilda's sewing. More pretty but practical clothes.
The Oliver+S Music Class blouse and skirt.
The blouse I sewed up in beautiful Liberty Capel. It is a fine silky lawn, a dream to sew.
Tildy's signature Liberty.
The skirt in cotton velvet, with the nap reversed for extra lushness.
I trimmed the pocket edge with some linen tape.
I chose the gathered insert option, I just couldn't face the thought of trying to get the thick fabric to hold a pleat.
I also added several inches to the size 5 skirt.
I made the blouse in a size 5 too. It is a tad big but as I was using such a nice fabric I wanted some growth.
An extra 3 inches to the hem means she can tuck it in.
Matilda's signature heart shaped buttons in MoP stitched with charcoal thread. Just to keep the prissiness in check.
Matilda chose pin-tucks, I think she chose well.
The pockets proved very popular.
Worn with Aunty Ana Sofia's special socks.
Just a tad long but she will grow.
Far too soon.
