Scarlett was the recipient of a knit middy shirt for the beach trip too. Hers in a white and pink polka dot knit. These shirts are an instant hit with my girls! They must be really comfortable because they were skeptical at first but after trying them on the middy shirts have been in heavy rotation this vacation.
I'm excited to find another equally comfortable alternative to the t-shirts I've been sewing. It's nice to have a shirt with a collar. I think I'll be making some more for the Fall.
I think it's a great look with shorts, but would work equally well with jeans or a skirt.
Speaking of shorts...don't you love a good preppy pair of shorts? These are they! This whale fabric is by Dear Stella and I was only able to score a half yard of it. Just enough to make another pair of Kids Shorts! Longer style. And I did my own thing with the pockets. The front are patch pockets with slanted tops and I put some faux flaps on the back.
Even better for an East Coast trip I guess, but this ensemble worked on the West Coast just fine.
