class picnic...

Last month I did a sew-along.  Whimsical Fabric Sew-Along.  We made the Oliver + S Class Picnic blouse and shorts.  It was a lot of fun, and I just LOVE the pattern!

I love the length of the sleeves, although shortening them would be cute too.  LOVE a raglan sleeve.  And the elastic across the top of the shoulder, genius.  So sweet and feminine.

The sizing was spot on, although I may lengthen the shorts just a tad next time... growth happens almost over-night around here, and I hate thinking that she'll grow out of these too quickly.

I used the wrong side of the fabric, (a denim from Joann's), for the contrast bands on the shorts.  

It was a quick sew.  I had a hard time waiting for the group.  I wanted to sew and just finish it up.  But that's how I am.  lack of patience.

 Hazel really liked this outfit!  I think this was her saying, "No!  I won't listen to anymore directions on how to pose, or smile.  I just want to play in my new clothes!!!"
