Cool and Breezy,that sums up this lovely pattern
A little too breezy on my gorgeous Zara.
That won't stop me making them again.
It will be a simple matter to add width to the 'wings' of the capris.
In conclusion,the Sand Piper is the slimmest fitting style of the original patterns. If your child's measurements put them in a 6-make the 6. If you want extra growth-make the 7.
The top will be replacing the Ruffled Halter as my ''go to'' birthday gift.
I am so disappointed that the pants won't fit Elsa and Zara for long but at least Liddy and Tilly are well catered for.
I used a drill and cotton shirting to make the pants. In hindsight the drill was too heavy-a linen weight or quilters cotton would be perfect.
I think a few linen versions may squeeze their way into the twins summer wardrobe.....and I do have some silk ones planned for Matilda for Christmas!
Thanks for reading
