We interrupt our regular transmission for a quick detour.
A lovely detour.
Zara had a surf camp and needed a few easy-to-wear basics.
The Liesl+Co Bento tee and the PurlSoho City Gym shorts
First outfit, I made the tee in a gorgeous, drapey cotton-modal I picked up in Melbourne.
The same stuff I made my Hudsons in.
It is not the easiest to sew but, my goodness, it is easy to wear.
The shorts are a linen/poly mix in khaki.
Such a nice fit.
This time we went with a fine cotton/lycra for the top, not as draping but nevertheless very smart.
In the same soft denim as I used last time.
I find by stitching labelling tape over the back neck seam it give the very thin band some substance and looks a little more professional.
The thin neck band is a pain to sew but looks so good!
I really like the Bento tee.
The shaped cuff sits so nicely as it is a wee bit narrower under the arm.
Just one of those clever little Liesl details.
Both the t-shirt and short pattern are extremely comfortable and flattering. The material for both of the t-shirts is amazing. Love the khaki green short colour. Its is really fashionable at the moment for girls of my age.
Isn't she lovely?
Thank you for reading.
