On Thursdays, I take a look back in my archives. After blogging for almost 8 years I find it’s refreshing to take a look back.
If there is one outfit that is top of my favorites that I’ve ever sewn for my daughter it is this one. I remember the day I bought this orange Japanese fabric (at my first ever visit to Textile Fabrics in Nashville) and this was also one of the first times I had sewn from Oliver + S (which I count as the one pattern company that has truly grown and stretched my sewing skills). It is the one outfit that I will never get rid of an she didn’t wear nearly enough. I love it from all the tiny frustrations and errors to the sweet little covered buttons on the back. Enjoy this post back from 2009.
This outfit has caused me to bang my head on the wall more than once…but now that it is complete I totally love it!
I showed off the shirt a few days ago, so here is the completed back.
I’m in love with the buttons. This is why I just loved this fabric, those little frogs peeking out!
Here is the skirt. The placket part is a bit messed up (not sure what happened there) but other than that it turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself!
Don’t you know what this little chick is wearing to church on Sunday!
Oh, the important stuff…the fabric is a Japanese print and the green is just something I splurged on at the local quilt shop. The pattern is Oliver + S: 2+2 Blouse and Skirt
And the quilt…next on the agenda now that I’ve whittled down my sewing pile (only to have it fill back up again after my girl’s weekend, but that’s another story!)
