I do love the 2+2 blouse by Oliver+S.
So much so I blogged a step by step tute.
Pair them with Puppet Show shorts
With a nice flat front waistband.
And you have a perfect outfit for play.
The fabric was another remnant from my Melbourne fabric shopping trip.
It is a funny, double layered sort of stuff. Definitely cotton or linen, it took a very hot iron.
I wanted to keep the look simple so I went with a self patch and swopped the ties for a bias loop and flower MoP button
(Trixie's signature Liberty and button)
I can't believe this is the first time I have made the short sleeve.
It is delightful.
To make sewing such a tiny hem easier I attached the binding before sewing the side seam.
I stitched the buttons with coral embroidery silk.
Sturdy and very very beautiful.
The shorts are made from a super soft linen/cotton. The pockets trimmed with cotton Broderie lace, blatantly copying Ana Sofia yet again.
The shorts fit like wee knickerbockers.
The sleeves are so sweet.
Hands up who thinks it is adorable?
Kiss for Sophie!
I am having so much fun sewing for her.
