It’s Kid’s Clothes Week again!? Time really flies… This time the theme is travelling. Well, that is my theme for the last couple of months as we are looking forward and preparing the wardrobe for our summer holidays. So this theme couldn’t suit us better!
As I mentioned before, Oliver + S patterns are very special to me, because being self-taught they allowed me to learn new techniques and I was able to obtain presentable results. Some of these garments I’ve made before having the blog, however you can find some of them here and here. So with that being said, it was with great satisfaction that we welcomed Flat S a couple of months ago. We had a great time and you can read all about that visit in here 😉
This time I made the girls a blouse, the class picnic blouse from Oliver + S. I already had this pattern for a long time but didn’t had the opportunity to make it until now!
Both blouses are in size 5 with no changes to the original. The fabric is a white pima cotton lawn and the lace was bought last year in Portugal, already with this blouse in mind!
Once again I liked the construction and the fact that it has elastics in the shoulders which gives a good fit and at the same time is easy to dress as it doesn’t need buttons (sometimes I have complains about how long it takes to do all the buttons!). I am very pleased with the way they look and fit the girls but also the fact of being extremely comfortable (which they can only be as the girls played and run so much)!!
This time it was even harder for me to get some photos as the girls were so energetic (more than their usual) that they wouldn’t stand still in the same place for a long period (not even a short period to be precise), so some of the photos are blurred!
Now I will go and have a look to what others have been doing for KCW 😉
Have a lovely week! 🙂
