I’m a big fan of long-sleeved simply styled envelope tops and dress Harry in them as often as I can. I really love the look of envelope necks and they are so easy to get on and off. This is one of the common styles of children’s clothes that I wish could be found more often in adult sizes as I’d definitely buy them for myself. Harry has not quite mastered the art of dressing and un-dressing himself as yet, but he is trying hard and this is a brilliant top for practising those skills as there are no frustrating fasteners and little risk of getting uncomfortably stuck with a tight neck-line trapped around your nose.
As you’d expect from any piece of Frugi clothing, this top is made from sumptuous, thick, organic cotton which comes out of the wash as good as (or perhaps even better than) new. I know it will keep its shape for as long as it lasts – and it is bound to have many other loving owners after Harry. Has anyone, anywhere ever worn out a piece of Frugi clothing, I wonder?
Initially I must admit I wasn’t sure about the colour combination of the retro stripe top – I probably would have gone for the ‘Too Blue’ one if I’d been making the choice myself (clothing is perhaps one of the few areas in which I tend towards conservatism!) – but I’ve quickly come to like it and it is definitely set-off perfectly by the Rascal Roll-Ups. Otherwise – the only drawback is that Harry is convinced the picture in the catalogue is of him, and gets rather upset when I try to disillusion him.
