Did you know they have a section just for boys fabric on their website? I dove right in and almost immediately spotted a fantastic pin dotted chambray by Robert Kaufman. Number one on my wishlist! And since I love stripes my next choice was quickly made, a Stenzo jersey knit with mini stripes.
A woven and a jersey, the best way to combine these two is (at least in my book) the Mulberry Tunic by Coffee & Thread (the artist formerly known as Kid Approved). The chambray worked perfectly with this pattern and the Stenzo knit has a really good quality and great stretch recovery. No flimsey jersey here!
I decided on making the short sleeved version because summer is around the corner (hopefully). Unfortunately we had rain all week, so indoor pictures it is. I had planned to snap some pictures near our lake, they just smartened up the quay and it's really crispy white for now (let's count the days till the first graffiti re-emerges). Oh well, you'll just have to imagine that shoot ;)
I'm quite pleased with little rascal's new Mulberry. The fabrics are perfect for those warm summer days you want to dress your kids in something cool and breezy!
