Being a teacher means we spend a few days during the year dressed up! But, if you can sew……you can make yourself an outfit!
I used Simplicity 1692 to make a red top to go with my red trousers.
So I could look like this……
Yes, I was Thing 1 from The Cat in the Hat… Because I am one of two Deputy Heads at our schooL.
The children kept asking me who was Thing 2, and when I suggested they guess they knew straight away who it would be!
We had an amazing day as Willy Wonka came to visit!
I ❤️️Willy Wonka!
We had quite a few Oompa Loompas around the place! Some seemed to get more orange as the day went on!
We had a great day and if there are any teachers reading this and need a fantastic treat for your school…Histrionics is fantastic! The best assemblies I have ever seen!
Anyway, back to the blouse. I used a red linen and some chunky buttons. More details here and close ups!
Also a tutorial type post about making the button loops here.
Pattern: Simplicity 1692
Fabric: 1.5 m of red linen.
Wonka Factor: 1010 . It is perfect for the Thing 1 look! I quite like the idea of another for the Summer! Perhaps in a Tilda available here
