Last year I found these 2 fabrics and fell in love with them. The bright colors, the flowers, and the pretty smiles go together to make a sweet look.
I made a blouse with an empire waist and ties in the back. When I went to attach the sleeves I realized I had forgotten to cut them out and I did not have enough fabric. Oh, no, what to do?
I did have a couple of long, narrow pieces left over, so I decided to make ruffles to use as sleeves. I love the effect.
I added a ruffle around the bottom of the blouse using the vertical patterned fabric.
I wanted to make a twirl skirt using the vertical print for a ruffle around the bottom. I used the bright smiley flowers for the body of the skirt and added a deep ruffle around the hem.
I also made an applique tee shirt using another coordinating fabric. These large smiley flowers are really cute.
The finished product is sure to be a hit-bright and cheerful-just perfect for summer and to carry her back to school.
Three coordinating pieces to add to her wardrobe-smiles and flowers abound.
