dress up


we’re going to a wedding tomorrow up the coast and both my kids needed something to wear. i dove into the italian stash and made my daughter a grey linen shorty dress with grey and pink tulle at the hem. for my son i made some basic pull on pants (he’s 7) out of the brown herringbone linen. he had one white button down shirt but i didn’t like the color with the pants so i dyed it in tea. now it looks really lovely. funny how you love your kids so much, you just want the thing that suits their beauty and charm. i think so much of the time it can be something you make rather than something you buy.
