April in Victoria is usually not a beachy month. Mid autumn, we are usually swapping cotton sheets for flannelette. But we have had lovely weather lately where I live and last week we had two days well above 30 degrees. I sometimes have ulterior motives for outings...taking photographs! I wasn't going to let an opportunity to photograph my girls at the beach in their new bathers in warm weather go to waste! So here are some happy snaps of our afternoon...
You might notice that Juliette's bathers look a little different. I noticed the stretch lace trim that I originally put on the suit (here) was rubbing on her legs. I unpicked all of it and replaced the trim with a gathered frill around the legs. I like it better this way and clothing being uncomfortable is not on.
And here is little Emily...she is not wearing a homemade bikini (hand me down third child), but she was certainly having a ball!
Thankfully, I got a decent photo of both girls (front on) that will be my pattern cover...yay!!! I have my blog tour sorted and am hoping this pattern will be ready for release on May 5th!
