I'm cranking things out like a mad woman over here! I just need to remember to stop and share them with you! This outfit started with the top from Children's Place. It was on sale for less than $5. I was probably crazy to buy white, but it was too cute. I couldn't resist.
The little capri pants are made from a wild purple flower fabric that has been in my stash for a very long time...I'm guessing 4 years. It is heavier than a standard cotton and has some stretch to it. I love the funky pants paired with the simple top.
To tie the outfit together I cut out 2 flowers from the fabric to applique, but then thought of a better idea. Since it is a white shirt it is inevitable that it will need to be bleached so I didn't want to permanently adorn it. I took the two flowers and cut white canvas for backing then free-motion quilted the two pieces together. I added a little safety pin to the backs and they were done! (And so much fun! I need to free-motion more!)
Next up - two more pairs of capris, a pair of shorts, some more lounge pants, maybe another skirt and then some dresses (which means I will have to actually break out a pattern! Yikes!!) And then I supposed I should actually make something for me!
Happy Thursday all!
