khaki scout uniform

Have you seen Moonrise Kingdom yet? Not my favorite Wes Anderson movie but amazingly gorgeous and perfect nonetheless. And one of my favorite themes, camping/scouting. And did you know that Kit, Chloe and Louise‘s free pajama pattern can be easily made into a khaki scout uniform? I was pretty excited when that dawned on me. All I had to do to modify was make some shirt pockets, fold up cuffs and tie a kerchief around her neck. I was going to sew up a bunch of tiny badges and then realized I had enough oddball buttons to do the trick. Now she’s quite the accomplished khaki scout!

    Love, love, love this!
    I haven’t seen Moonrise Kingdom yet, is it better than The Life Aquatic?
    I feel like Wes Anderson’s movies lost their sense of joy when Owen Wilson stopped co-writing them.

    Love her! The movie was filmed here in Rhode Island, and we know a few of the scout extras! They used our Boy Scout camp for some scenes. It was fun to recognize various locations!

    Oh my, the options are endless with this pattern. I am so inspired Hilary! Our little purpled-haired Louise is my daughter’s favorite doll but she may just need a girl scout buddy. Loved Moonlight Kingdom, especially all the period details…like them drinking Tang!
