Garner, North Ca...
Before I made this outfit, I imagined this blouse in stripe navy and white and pants in navy. Luckily, I found woven navy and white stripe fabric and brushed twill teal fabric and ordered them in a heartbeat. Finally, they came true into reality by my own hands! I wore this outfit to my little brother’s high school graduation which it was perfect. What I like about this outfit is that it looks classic and comfortable to wear. The blouse has a pocket that looks concealing in the picture. It also has shoulder tabs with gold buttons. I made both of blouse and pants exactly as they are from the pattern. Easy to make.
Lightweight navy & white stripe fabric made of mixed with cotton (not sure what else) imported from France for the blouse.
Bottom weight brushed twill fabric for the pants. It’s probably made of polyester and cotton. Very soft. Both fabrics were from fabricmart.com I think they may be sold out.
Gold paint covered buttons (hope this gold color stays on throughout many washes!)
