Here is a little grey dress for Ms. M, who no doubt has too many dresses for a girl that, now summer is almost here (35 degrees today!), will be primarily hanging out in singlets and a nappy. The birdies are pink, but it is a bit hard to tell from the picture.Some grey 'dragon' shorts for Master E, who when presented with them declared that he would prefer crocodile pants. Amazing how two year olds know exactly what to say to push your buttons... not to worry I faked nonchalance.
Both garments, I am proud to say, have been finished beautifully - french seams throughout. Making up veggie bags with french seams is one thing, but making garments wasn't as tricky as I thought it was going to be once I got my head around it.
So what do you think about grey for baby and toddler clothes?
Grey is one of my favourite colours and I particularly love pink and grey together (which is interesting because I'm not especially fond of pink on its own). Ms. M was wearing her frock the other day with a pink stripped t-shirt underneath and it looked really good on her. I was worried that the grey pants might look a bit school uniform on Master E. but no they're actually a very handy item as they go with most shirts in his draws & look great back to front too! (one E's favourite ways to wear apparel these days - that and shoes of the wrong feet!)
