I am so glad to have children that love to have clothes made for them, though I realise this will not last forever. So while they enjoy and wear them, I cannot help but make them more. Above is an Oliver + S Lazy Days Skirt, my favourite easy pattern for my skirt loving girls. The fabric is some that I dyed at home using indigo dye.
Miss M got a new shirt, another Oliver and S pattern, this time the Music Class Blouse. I normally avoid anything with buttonholes, but my new sewing machine has an easy buttonhole program and I will never be afraid of buttonholes ever again.
The fabric is a fine white gauze with Swiss dots and the buttons are vintage. The pink tinge is from the vest Miss M is wearing underneath – because she liked it. Miss M must have been happy with the shirt because she insisted on wearing it before I had a chance to remove all the blue pattern markings.
