Mmmm... This is the striped seersucker set I mentioned before. So soft and cuddly and just a bit reminiscent of Jessie Wilcox Smith nursery book illustrations. I did shorten the grosgrain ties, even though I loved them long. The cap was initially deemed 'a little bonnet-ish' (read 'girly') by the Professor, but was upgraded to classic once the ties were cut to a sporty length. This worked out best all around, as immediately after snapping this photo, Little Bear found the ties and undid them, eventually taking the cap off in the process.
I did have the presence of mind to fuss over the thread spool and bobbin colors, resulting in a reversible cap. It is lined in the green linen of the previous pair of pants, and thus does double duty. A white linen shirt in a different style will be next, just need to get the fabric laundered.
