In June we all went to see my parents in Ukraine and I did a lot of feverish sewing before the trip. I made several Mulberry tunics (purchase pattern here) for my son. It's a great pattern for summer, casual and comfortable. (On sale till August 18th, midnight, with backtoscool code)
I made no modifications, except I cut the yoke on bias, to add more interest.
I love the ease of the tunic, it's perfect to play in, but less casual then a plain t-shirt. The fabric came from my stash. It's really nice cotton shirting that I got at the garage sale for a quarter. No kidding. And I had a lot of it. I already made a dress for Ania from it (here). Ania got all excited and told Max that they can go to school as twins. Max wasn't so thrilled about the idea. lol
We were at the huge park, that I remember going to as a child. It was a perfect giveaway from the frenzy and noise of the city. The park is split by a very deep ravine. The two parts are connected by the bridge, called the Lovers Bridge. We went there to take pictures, but that never happened. I forgot how much I was scared of the heights, plus it didn't look reliable enough to me, ha!
Instead we went to explore a creek.
Max loves his shirt and wears it all the time. It's comfortable and easy to wear.
