Hey lovelies! Have you missed me?
I have been somewhat inundated with Superhero orders, thanks to Children in Need having Superhero for it's theme! Cheers Pudsey! :D I was very good and donated £2 from each set to Children in Need so a lovely donation of £10 has gone from Rory and Millie's Wardrobe. *warm and fuzzy feeling*
I have also had the lovely chance to test another pattern!
I first bumped into The Plucky Butterfly a couple of months ago when I was venturing into the world of knit. I fell in love with her Rissa Roo Pixie top and it was next in line for purchase when I was actually lucky enough to win it! It is now a staple in our household with lot's of options, the girls love the cute ruffle and Daddy loves that it covers their butt! So, when a message popped up on my Facebook that the Butterfly was looking for testers, I jumped in!
The Beach To School Knit Bottoms are amazing. That's all really. What can I say? 3 fits, 3 styles and 5 lengths? Erm, yep, that's my kids clothed for 10 years as it runs from 2-12 years old! Oh, and there's a doll pattern as a freebie!
Rory loves her trousers. We had great fun taking pics and she gave them a full workout. These are the slim fit but I like that they are not legging slim. I have two extremely active girls and worry that their trousers may be indecent, no worries here!
That was the longest length. The shorts were also great, although we will keep them for pj's here in the UK! These were fab for just popping on under her jammie dress or under those long dressing up princess dresses to keep bums warm.
These were such a quick make, I managed to get both pairs done from printing to wearing in about an hour, and I am not that fast! The yoga waist band means no extra elastic to buy and there are options for ruffles and flounces on the longer sizes.
The Butterfly's instructions are a joy to read and full of her own personality. They are a joy to read and I had a constant smile on my face while making them.
Please, go visit her website and buy the only bottoms pattern you will ever need!!
