The bodice is black lace on top of pink cotton. I used my fave pattern “afternoon tea top” again, and a simple rectangle skirt. I found and “borrowed” these cute buttons at my grandma’s in England when I went over last year. You can’t really see it on the pics but I hemmed the skirt with this cute wiggly stitch that I discovered on my machine the other day ;)Sorry I forgot to iron it before I took the photos.
Not sure when I’ll ever get to wear this ( it turned out much fancier than planned and I don’t really ever wear this kind of stuff), but hey, it was fun making !
