Let's call this one, the day when things didn't quite go to plan...
The plan was to trace and cut the beautiful Croquet dress by Oliver + S.
The reality was, after school the girls mentioned something about the Sea/Hawaiian themed school disco being on tomorrow night, not next Thursday as I had firmly fixed in my head....
|Strips of silver lycra on elastic and a Brooklyn tank ready for the disco|
They have grown taller but not wider, so the issue was the tops were not really appropriate to wear out in public and also they needed bather bottoms to go under the scant skirts.
I had already calculated that Miss L's new two piece bathers were ready to go - but Miss A needed a new top (she's going to wear L's blue bather bottoms under her pink skirt - shock horror!).
And so the reality tonight became cutting and sewing up another little lycra singlet top and also creating the six silver sparkly arm bands they requested to go around their wrists "for when we are dancing".
And yes I said six - because of course the smallest kid (who's not going to the disco) had to have a pair too.
The catalyst for such armwear?? The 'big' grade six girls wore them in black recently for the school concert when they were dancing.
Obviously they made an impression, I hope these ones do too!
How was your day today - did everything go to plan or not so much??
No new patterns in this lot (no I am not going to count the armbands!) so I still have to bust out at least one new pattern for the month.
