It's been a busy week here at my house. We had my son's 9th birthday, a school concert and lots of other school involvement on my part. I coordinate the snacks for afterschool clubs and this was our first week of the second quarter, I'm also a parent volunteer for Musical Theater club (props and costuming) and I'm coordinating the class art project for the auction. Really, I enjoy what I'm doing but you can see why the sewing has come in bits and pieces this week.
However, I got it done and I love the result!
My model was tired because it was right before bedtime. She was not overly cooperative and the bunny was part of the deal or Evangeline would allow no pictures would be taken.
Oliver+S 2+2 Blouse Pattern
Oliver+S Sunday Brunch Skirt
Red Twill for the Skirt
Pink Knit for the Shirt
Red and White checked cotton for the neck, button placket and pocket lining
Wool Felt for the Hearts
I modified the shirt pattern by eliminating the buttons in the back, adding a button placket to the front, lowering the gathering point and adding some hand embroidered wool felt hearts.
I made the skirt in a nice stiff twill that will wear well. The kick pleat in the back is my favorite part.
The button placket was a fun addition I used a heart button and three tiny buttons as a closure. The knit fabric is super soft and has long sleeves for chilly weather.
The skirt has 7 hearts all the way around. The smaller hearts are differing shades of pink and the backing hearts are grey and dark grey.
I called an end to the photoshoot at this point.
Buenas Noches, Evangeline. Que suenos con los angelitos.
