Music Class Blouse and Skirt

June 12, 2017   /   bymotherof5  / Categories :  Feeds
A few years back my lovely sewing friend Ana Sofia sent me some gorgeous Winter weight cotton and I have finally got around to sewing it up.
And what did I sew?
An Oliver+S Music Class blouse
I have lost count of how many times I have sewn this pretty little blouse.
I went with the pin tucks and long sleeves (adding a few inches to the hem, the pattern runs a bit short on my girls)
Heart shaped MoP buttons finish the look.
Hugo is up in Adelaide during the week now but still heads home most weekends.
The last few times he has brought me home some treats from The Drapery
The above pretty blue denim was one of them.
So I made a Music Class skirt.
It looked a little prissy, such a firm fabric with the mermaid gathers, so I added a faux waist tie in cotton webbing.
I made Tildy the size 8 in both.
(With length to both pieces).
The blouse is a wee bit long in the sleeves  but she is growing like a weed.
~Tildy's Verdict~
The pattens on the shirt reminds me of fire works and balls of happiness jumping around everywhere. The colours on the shirt are my type of colours. 
I love the dots put together to make pattens. 
The whole thing is beautiful. I love the light blueish colour and  I love the big pockets on the skirt.

 ~My Verdict~
Another favourite from O+S.
I love the details on the blouse and was genuinely saddened as each of my older girls grew out of the sizing.
It doesn't tuck, it is a cropped style but as my girl wear singlets and I dislike them on show I always add a few inches length.
The skirt is also, very short. Adorable but too short for my girls. This is the size 12 length and Tilly is the shortest in her class.
It is a nice speedy sew though, one hour, start to finish and it sews up nicely in a 1/2 metre remnant.
