(When she was a teen and I arrived at the breakfast table wearing something she deemed out-of-style she would say to me "Mom, the 80's called and they want their clothes back.")
I rely on her for all the latest trends. I hoping she'll tell me shoulder pads are back in style because I still have a load of them.
But I digress.
Armed with the 'white blouse' information I went to work to make Caitlin a perfect little white blouse to be her wardrobe basic essential.
|Size 2T. White poly-cotton.|
Then I made a basic skirt. I broke from my stash challenge rule and bought some beige twill.
|Cute little pleats.|
Together, the two essentials look good. I have some plans to make a jumper that will also go with the blouse; a jacket that will go with both blouse and skirt. If I could knit, I'd make a little cardigan.
|I'm a non-knitting granny.|
The pattern I used was Oliver + S, Music Class blouse and skirt. Once again, the pattern was drop dead easy. However the blouse was a bit fiddly (no pun intended) as it needed many tucks. But they weren't difficult to do by any means.
I am really happy with the results. It looks clean and crisp.
