I just finished working on this outfit for Isabel. I love, love, love it and want one for myself. I used this super soft linen that I got from Harts
. (note to self: kids don’t like linen. they hate it.)
I started by making a simple shift top…
Then I spent a long
time making a lot
This is how the top came out. The ruffles go all the way around the collar.
Here’s the skirt I made. I wanted the outfit to go together, but still be able to be worn separate and have as much impact on it’s own.
A closeup of the pleats.
The waistband. I even like the orange stitching on it.
Isn’t the color combination great?
Here’s how it looks together!
I think I’m mildly obsessed with pleats now. What I’m planning next is all white dresses for the girls with a slightly off white color for the pleats. So it will be a white on white dress, but with slight variations. I’m just working on the dress design right now. I can’t wait to make it!
I have a tutorial for women coming up inspired by this shirt from Anthropologie that I’ve been eyeing for months.
It’s turning out really cute so check back for it soon! I’m waiting one more day for the bubble dress vs. ruffle skirt tutorial votes then I’ll put together a tutorial for the winning one.
