Description

Hey, I’m back!

After seeing the gathered back of a blouse on a girl in the street the other day, I couldn’t stop thinking of this project.
After a few days, I had this very clear idea of it, and I found this cute fabric…

And now I realize : this looks exactly like a christening baby dress !!!

So, it is a little bit awkward, I am not sure I am going to wear it a lot. I suppose it would look better if I had a smaller bust.

Oh and I discovered a fantastic tool : a biais tape maker ! It is cheap and it is very easy to use, biais tape finally became fun to make! I really recommand it!

    Like Anthropologie to me. I always say that I wish I could make that " little girl top/dress into a misses. I love it. And it’s got the sexy with the crop top. I can see this Long Sleeve, keep the short length without elastic in a pink fuzzy sweater fabric. Same color, different fabric for the Peter Pan Collar with pink pearl buttons on tiny cuffs. Just saying. I love it.
