We’re one week into the summer school holidays and revelling in the complete lack of commitments to anyone but ourselves. Leisurely mornings give way to afternoons in the park or playing in the garden or visiting with grandparents.
Obviously crafty pursuits aren’t my priority, but even so, I managed to whip up this little playsuit for Button, which is the perfect outfit for the hot weather we’ve been having here of late.
The pattern is Elegance & Elephant’s Pleated Playsuit…a free pattern that you’d happily pay good money for.
I love Heidi’s patterns, as you know, and this one is no exception. There are some adorable details:
The fabric is Lizzie House’s Cattitude which Button had loved so much when I made the Geranium dress, but this time in an almost acid chartreuse bought on sale from John Lewis. I’d been browsing there a couple of weeks ago with no intention of purchasing fabric, but as soon as I saw this I snaffled the last metre or so with glee.
I’m so glad I did. I just adore this little playsuit and have at least two more planned. It’s comfy, cute and modest.
What more could you ask for?
