JoCole Leggings review and some Skandi fun!

Sometimes, it's the simple things that are the very best. 

Two basic pairs of leggings, devoid from any embellishments, but created from exceptional fabric. 

Lil  (8) will wear these leggings to death. Under too-short tunics, with long tees, under short skirts, with her boots. 

The one left is from Sanetta Vichy knit, the right, GITTA in red/white. Both cotton/spandex fabrics from Germany, and quite possibly better quality than any high end children's wear you will buy in Australia.( Oh yes, I was once THAT mum, before I started sewing some 22 years ago, my eldest was only ever in designer clothes. But the quality was missing?).

Jo's patterns are simply the BOMB. She has degrees in this stuff, and boy does it show. The presentation and cut of these patterns is brilliant. She gives you so much information, you will feel like you've just been to sewing class. Truly, check them out.

And a spiffy tee I whipped up to match, this is Otto #301, of course. In STELLA and our new Skandi Mushies!
