When I first saw the Nature Walk pattern from Oliver + S, I wasn't drawn to it, but after seeing a couple of wonderful versions on Flickr, by Nicole and Shasta, I had to have it!
Not like me, I know!
Anyway T was so excited that this was a "boy pattern"...of course it is totally unisex, but he is just happy with the boy on the envelope!
So I made him this.....
When he came in from school today, I had just finished it...he was keen to try it on, hence the school tie....
The sleeves are a bit long for him, I will probably shorten them. I made him a size 8yr...he is 6 and a half, he is 128cm tall. It fits really well in the body though. Maeve really wants one and I think I may just add a bit of length to this size for her, although she is 138cm. The sleeves are perfect on her, and it is nice and slim fitting.
I made these Sunday Brunch jackets for the little girls in the hopes that they would stop wearing their Ottobre coats from 8.30am until 5.30pm.....(I wish I was joking), but instead they wear these under their Ottobre coats!
I put them on in the morning on the way to the bus and they refuse to take them off.....some fights are not worth having...it will pass as the weather improves...I hope!
She is fed up with being photographed btw!
All the fabrics I used are from Dots'n'Stripes and both patterns are Oliver + S.
