First make of Kids Clothes Week is complete! I'm really happy with this lovely little dress. The pattern is the Playtime Dress and leggings from Oliver + S. I added these gorgeous little triangular leather elbow patches which I'm pretty sure I've seen somewhere (probably on Pinterest) and shamelessly copied, but I have no idea where I saw it!
The back view. How cute are those elbows?! And the gathers! And the messy curls!
I really liked the topstitched peter pan collar, so much so that I'm almost wishing that I'd done it in more of contrasting colour - you almost can't see it! (Also, don't judge me on my poor ironing skills...)
Both the dress and leggings were a big hit with the little lady. Fortunately, because I cut into my precious Art Gallery Wanderer Knit for the leggings and would have been really annoyed if she hadn't liked them! I actually cut them upside down (aagghh!) - I didn't realise the print was directional until I spotted those tiny little upside down horses. So frustrating. Still, I'll probably be the only one who ever really notices!
Also, It's not technically a Kids Clothes Week make because I finished it last week but I finally got some nice pictures of the boy in his 'I solemnly swear I am up to no good' hoodie. He refused to try it on for days, until I lost patience and practically wrestled him into it. Once the tantrum was over he decided that actually he REALLY likes it. So much so that he has been sleeping in it and refusing to wear anything else. Mama always knows best...!
