Ithaca, New York...
I named this project after My husband told me I looked like a cream puff on seeing me in this outfit for the first time. (He meant well!!)
Double layers of fabric were used for the blouse since it was see-through. I serged(roll hem) both layers together at the bottom hem.
I got the orange fabric for the skirt from a local second-hand fabric store—-I think it’s Cotton/Poly. It didn’t take ironing well… but on the other hand, it does not wrinkle easily, so I guess that’s a good thing for the skirt.
I shortened the skirt and eliminated the slit in the center back.
I’m also wearing the crocheted collar necklace I made (it’s in my previous projects).
