Vest - Kwik Sew 2536
Riviera Leggings - Sewing Clothes Kids Love
Nothing very interesting to see here folks - just a little sewing for school.
Winter is a bit of a tricky season when you live in the tropics. The early mornings are cool. However, by 10am though, things have seriously warmed up. Outside is sunny and hot, but usually things remain cooler indoors. What to wear, what to wear?
Rather than send Meg off in a tracksuit to school, knowing full well she'll be breaking out in a sweat by morning tea, I decided to sew her some fleecy vests and leggings. Let's face it, all girls love leggings. They provide that extra layer and are light enough to wear all day. Sleeveless vests are perfect for up here. They provide enough warmth without overheating. It's a win-win really.
The vests were an absolute bargain. I picked up the green fleece (mandatory school colour - ick!), green-spotted lining and pattern all at the op-shop. This little haul came in at a total of 70c. I pretty much got two vests for not much more the cost of two zippers. Nice.
To top it all off, Meg is more than happy to wear this little ensemble with her uniform. She wore them everyday last week. Yay! It's always nice when your children actually wear the clothes you make them!
