Matilda's class is dancing to a Beach Boy medley.
'Beachy clothes' were requested as a costume.
Tilly had bathers but she really really wanted a costume.
|Class Picnic top and shorts|
With help from the Twins, we put together a fun, bright ensemble that should have good stage presence.
The rayon was horrid to sew. I pinned, matched notches' and held my breath.
The shorts made in taslon will drip dry quickly. They make great swim shorts.
I just tacked the bobble fringe on for fun. If it deteriorates I can remove it without any damage to the shorts.
It is a pretty cute little outfit.
I am not sure how long the rayon will last, it was pretty flimsy to sew but as more seams were sewn, it seemed a lot more stable.
But seeing it is, in theory, a costume, any extra wear is a bonus.
I think there will be extra wear.
The nitty-gritty kitty.
A cute little pattern, very O+S.
I think the shorts are overlooked but my children prefer them to the famous Puppet Show. I have a tute here, if you want some hand holding.
My girls lurve this top, it is their go to play top.
The neck can cause a few issues.
I have a step by step tute here if it does for you.
This is another, ostensibly, girls pattern but I would absolutely sew it for a little boy.
In fact, when I sewed the last lot up for Tilly I made them unisex, just in case.
