Here's the top in more detail. I just love the florals on vintage sheets.
And here is the peasant top in more detail. I wanted the lace to lay down flat and be a little neutral since I sometimes end up layering AJ's white shirts under her dresses. I think this might be the completion of her wardrobe. Although I do have one more outfit to post for her later.
Now on to my skirt. It is from Simplicity 2451 and I really like the way it turned out.
If you keep up with this blog you know I like to thrift a lot of fabric and this blue was another thrift find. I almost passed it up but am glad I went ahead and brought it home.
This skirt was recommended on Pattern Review and was a favorite pattern and was said to be flattering to most body types...always a bonus! The only alteration I made was to let it out a quarter inch on both sides just so that it wasn't too tight. I wore it this past weekend and really liked the length and the pockets.
And finally for the actual Mother's Day photos. I thought I would first post a sweet one...
And next post a realistic one...
GOOD GRIEF this child gets harder and harder to wrestle into submission!!! Ha! If you can notice the dress that I am wearing is from this post. Its the Burda pattern that I just loved. The fit was just right for me. I still plan on making more. Well take care and happy sewing!
