I get TOO happy when I see this outfit on Camden!! I don't know if you recall, but I made Camden a Figgy's Ayashe blouse back in December of last year, and I maybe mentioned that I'd also made two others....to pair with Zonen Jacob pants (their FB page).
Well, yay - I finally did! Better late than never??? All is well in the end, as this is the perfect back-to-school outfit. You can see in the December post that the first blouse will also pair with these pants perfectly. I was pretty intentional at the time - rare for me, I think.
I'm pretty excited - this pairing, to me, is great - simple and cozy! I love Ayashe blouses on Camden, and shame on me for having not made Camden a pair of Jacob pants since this pair a year and a half ago.
The pants turned out delightfully, but I subconsciously chose laziness when sewing them. I didn't include a fly, because, for some reason, I assumed I hadn't on the last pair, and it turns out I HAD. Ah, well - saved me some time, aha! I did use a cute contrasting fabric as a pocket liner on the front pockets, though the pattern does not call for a pocket liner on the front OR the back. I didn't line the back pockets, but I did make sure to fold down the top edge twice, though the pattern doesn't call for that either; it just makes me feel better deep down inside.
I have nothing riveting to say about either pattern, as I've blogged about them both before, but LOOK how CUTE the outfit is - well, either, really! The pink flowered blouse is a gauze, and the other is a super lightweight fabric - possibly a lawn, but I can't recall.

I also made sure to sneak Camden's green socks into the photos, too! And speaking of hand-knit socks, I have a pair on the needles for Camden - and a pair for myself. I suppose I should search for a yarn to use for Tiberius, but in the meantime, I'm working on the re-knit of the Antler sweater for Tiberius...and a Christmas in July for Camden (first version blogged here). (I'll soon blog about about a Tallulah I just finished for Camden, too!) So, I have a lot of plans, but I'd also love to cast on a new shawl soon, and I'm thinking I'll have a hard time, as I'll want to choose yarn first - THEN shawl pattern, which can be tricky for me.
And...basically a DAY in the life - probably our last warm ocean visit for the year!
