Two weeks left of the summer holidays and for a change, I’m feeling smug because I’ve bought school shoes for Darcy. Yaaayyyy!!! Buying shoes for Darcy is a near-impossible task. I mentioned before my Cinderella theory.
Put yourself in her shoes
Darcy has ridiculously narrow feet and one foot is longer than the other, so shoe shopping is like filling in your tax return, you know it’s going to give you a headache, so you put it off and put it off, then finally do it at the absolute very last minute.
But after over an hour in a specialist kids shoe shop all the way up in Aberdeen and nine pairs of shoes later, we finally found some Geox that of course don’t fit perfectly, but look great and are probably the best fit we’re going to get.
So, are you ready for back-to-school? That’s if your kids are not back to school already, in the UK the school year is different from other countries. But still, if you have ever thought about sewing school uniform or clothes for your kids to wear to school, I have just the inspiration you may need, in a handy LOOKBOOK style, so just ring that bell…
And remember you can still get 20% off all Madeit patterns until the end of the August using code ‘btsnat‘ at checkout.
