Seasonal choices

elkiIt’s amazing how much of an impact the time of year your baby is born has on sartorial choices. My son was born in June — which is winter-time in Australia. So woolen hats outnumbered any other gift (other than socks, for some strange reason). But I was talking to a friend recently who had a summer baby and she said her son lives in nappy cover shorts. Unfortunately I never got the chance to buy these for little C… but maybe next time I’ll have a summer baby (am I really talking next time?!), and I’ll be able to buy bloomers such as these. I saw this range recently from Elki. Sisters Emma and Georgina import fabric directly from Liberty of London to hand-make their products. Just beautiful.

It seems that the Liberty fabric is very famous this summer. I also saw this fabric at the new monamici collection and at Rose Desbois

It’s funny — when Ivy was born I received so many pairs of bloomers as gifts. At first I was confused what they were even for, but I’ve grown to love them. It’s definitely a girl thing.
