Did I say I was obsessed with Oliver & S? How many posts am I going to do on this? Anyways, the first top today is another Ice Cream top in a size 7. The fabric is a Robert Kaufman light chambray on top, with Windham Fabrics Storybook Classics in Red Bubblegum Flower. I love, love, love the storybook classics line, the sweetest cheerful vintage feedsack patterns. The Kaufman chambrays are so nice to work with, and I bought up a decent amount- you’ll be seeing more of it for sure. It is probably a good thing that I can’t buy any of this fabric locally- I would be in trouble! These were purchased on my recent trip to NYC (Purl Soho!)
Of course I had to make one for Eleanor too! Hers is a size 5 with the Kaufman chambray on the bottom, and a pretty pink/green tree print fabric I picked up at Joanns years ago. I can’t wait to send her off to school in this, it looks so adorable. So strange to sew back to school clothes for Eleanor…I am really having a hard time with this one. Although I think I will welcome some free time (for the first time in over 6 years- I will be home alone for hours at a time!) it will be the end of an era, I have so identified myself as a stay at home Mom. This is strange, considering I have worked the entire time, albeit part-time. Now with both girl headed to school, my identity will certainly shift, as will hers. Lots of changes coming up for sure!
I have to stop myself soon, or their entire closet will be packed with these tops. Well, maybe I’ll stop after I make a dress version for Isabel (or two).
