Last month I let J lose designing himself some clothes from the fabulous Patchery and he came up with a dinosaur themed hoodie ideal for comfortable play so it’s only fair that T gets to make herself some as well. So she was let loose on the site and came up with a comfortable dress for playing her way. This is a great way to let kids design their own clothes that you know they will wear.

T sometimes appears a very girly girl – in fact, she’s more girly than me but she also has her own style. It used to be all about the Pink but over the last year she’s gone more and more towards earthy colours which I love so when sitting down to design something for play in spring she wanted to combine her love of earthy colours, with a dress that was comfortable to get out and play in the garden as well as around the house.

The fabrics used by The Patchery are soft cotton knits and with carefully selected mix and match fabric choices, T had no problem designing something for herself. When looking through the dresses on the site T spotted the Kangaroo dress which she decided would be ideal for Spring. It had long sleeves and she could wear it over leggings or tights depending on the weather.

So she set about selecting some fabrics from the choices and got to design her own comfortable Spring Dress. It took 3 weeks to arrive from the US to the UK and with a $6 delivery charge was cheaper than if we had ordered from somewhere in the UK. The difference which she and I both love is that there is no one that has the same dress as her.

Of course, T being T she immediately styles it with her wellington boots and head out to prove how comfortable it is for playing soccer in the garden or American Football.
