My daughter attends a kindergarten where uniforms are required, so this is actually more of a fantasy capsule than something really meant for school, hence the title. But then again, she runs around in these clothes all the time, so they are kindergartener tested.
First up is the Aster Cardigan by LBG Studio paired with the Clover Shorts by Mouse House Creations. Both are from the Willow & Co. collection, which you can purchase here. Under the cardigan, she is wearing the Amour Top from Filles A Maman.
I cannot tell you how much I love all three items (I probably say that every time I sew something new, but it's true -- each time!). My daughter spotted the cardigan and insisted on wearing it right away, despite the 31C weather. I made it using a soft and lovely knit fabric (the cream is sold out, but she still has the grey here) from Miss Matatabi. So stretchy and I love how it's really like a sweater.
Here my daughter paired it with the Pleat Fold Top from Madeit Patterns. Notice the fabric I used for the pockets on the shorts? You got it. My favorite sparkly fabric from Cotton + Steel.
The Amour Top by Filles a Maman is something I have been wanting to make ever since I first laid eyes on it, and I finally got around to making it. I made this one using some Art Gallery fabric and used a different binding than what was recommended so that the brown bias would show. I thought it added a little something. I plan to make one in voile for the spring. They pair excellently with the Clemence shorts, which I have made as well (my WIP here). She loves those, too, and they work perfectly under her school uniform dress.
Next up is the Norah Dress from Mouse House Creations. I actually started with this dress when creating the collection. It seems so "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" to me. The fabric is again from Miss Matatabi.
Here she is playing "dress up lady" wearing the Jaanu. I made it bigger because I wanted to make sure she'd be able to wear it next spring/summer as well. I think it would look great with the Aster Cardigan over it, don't you?
This is the original pattern (worn with the Morocco Shorts from Petit a Petit and Family):
I've made no secret of the fact that I love the patterns from Petit a Petit, and I love the latest pattern, the Goodall Cardigan. Celina is offering the pattern for free if you join the Facebook group. It's a great pattern and I've made one for both daughters so far.
My daughter chose this outfit herself (the cardigan is worn with the Petal Fold Culottes from Madeit Patterns), proclaiming it "perfect for school". Hm. Well, as long as she's comfortable in it and happy.
And finally -- finally!! This fabulous pattern from Filles a Maman!! It hasn't been released yet, but I received special permission from Mel to show you. I am so excited about it. It's the Petit Oiseau Top paired with the Poppy's Peplum leggings. I know, I know. Perfect for school, right? That is, if "school" were really a carnival. Ha ha ha! It's a musical, people. Come on, sing with me! Or not.
The pattern will be coming very soon, so keep an eye out and join the FAM Facebook group!
