Lily Sage and Co Daisy Chain Top & Oliver + S Classic Picnic Shorts

UntitledFrom the moment I saw the Lily Sage and Co Daisy Chain Top pop up on Instagram I knew I needed to make one for Miss O! I mean really what could be better than a top that is as perfect for twirling as it is for climbing and running?! So when I spotted this gorgeous Nani IRO at Tessuti Fabrics I knew exactly what I needed to do.UntitledI sewed up this little top in a straight size 3 as it is the smallest size provided for this pattern, even though Miss O is generally on the smaller side of a size 2 figuring that even if was far too big it could be put away for next year. Though despite being a little roomy around the chest I am pleased to report the fit is entirely acceptable on my little lady. UntitledThe pattern came together like a dream, and was finished within an afternoon despite being one of the first project I have ever used my new overlocker on. The pattern instructions were clear and concise and I couldn’t be happier with the finished top, which is already a firm favourite of Miss O’s! Having never worked with double gauze before I am still amazed just how well it worked for this pattern. It’s just so incredibly soft and beautiful, and I’m sure it will be amazing to wear over the summer! 

UntitledI finished off this little outfit with an old favourite pattern, the Oliver and S Classic Picnic Shorts. I first sewed these up for Miss O last summer (whilst not blogged they can be seen here) and they fast became one of my favourite things for Miss O to wear. Sewn in a size 2, I was able to squeeze these shorts out of the denim scraps from Miss O’s Tea Party Sundress using Using the Nani IRO for the contrast, and I am in love with just how well they go togeather. This outfit has already a firm favourite and has already had two outings with tights and a top underneath, though I’m sure it will truly come into its element once summer finally hits. My only regret is that they aren’t in my size!
