Lavender. Smells so good. It is one of my favourite scents. I have two varieties of lavender growing in my garden, but aside from that not a lot of objects sporting a lavender hue in or around my home. So much so that today I purchased a roll of parma violets (a close friend’s favourite lolly) and a bar of lavender soap so that I would have some objects to photograph!
Personally I don’t wear a lot of lavender or purple either. As such I’ve made a couple of outfits for Ms. M in a lavender hue of purple – I’m conscious of the fact that as the primary clothes maker and shopper in this household that the children might accidentally end up matchy-matchy with me.
Here is a shot of Ms. M from the beginning of the year wearing a lavender outfit that I made for her using an Enid Gilchrist pattern…
… and here she is again in another ensemble made up of lavender hues that I have only recently sewn-up:
Oh my! Look at how much she has grown this year.
