Last week we had a few days away - we went down to Cromwell and then further south to visit my family. We had lovely weather and it was a good chance for K to explore new and familiar places.
It was a great opportunity to give her one of her birthday presents, just a little early, an explorer vest and matching hat!
music box dress. I had originally planned to make the vest in red, but the image of a fisherman stirred in my mind!
I lined the vest in a light blue print with kites and used bias binding left over from the nurse's uniform I made recently to edge the armholes.
The pattern for both the vest and the hat are from Oliver + S 'Little Things To Sew' (again!) and they work so well together that I'm surprised I hadn't thought of it earlier!
Lake Dunstan but K is imagining how big the one that never even bit our hook was...
Here she is with her Pop out on the boat - wearing a very safe vest instead! Love the hat inside the hoodie look!
Next time... maybe... the fish will come home with us!
Two more items for my tally in the 'Cover to cover' challenge from 'Bartacks and Singletracks' (numbers 8 and 9) and numbers 83 and 84 in my O+S count!
