So, tunic tops it was. Very quick and easy and very gratifying. The most fun bit was adding little details to each.
Katie’s top got ribbon around the cuffs and hem.
And Islay’s has little pockets. Which she loves. Adding pretty pockets is a very easy way to please a 5 year old!
In case you were wondering………yes, I do iron, occasionally and possibly not as much as I should. I like the spotty fabric I used for Islay’s tunic, and it was good value from Ikea, but it does seem to show up my lack of house-work skills rather more than I’d like.
Two happy girls and one happy mummy. And the things that needed doing? I can’t remember what they were but they did either get done in the end or, if they didn’t get done, they actually weren’t that important after all. I must remember that more often.
