I’m excited to share with you my Easter outfit! This is the fourth year I’ve made an Easter outfit (inspired by my babcha and Ukrainian heritage).
As soon as I saw 02/2015 #121 and #127 Crop Top and Skirt patterns in the Burdastyle magazine, I knew I had to make it for Easter!
However, my linen didn’t arrive until 2 weeks before Easter!!! With this said, my mom saved me and helped with some of the embroidery!
The embroidery designs are from Ukrainian embroidery books I purchased from Ukraine. Each strip of embroidery is about 20 stitches wide.
I adjusted the back of the skirt. Instead of a 45" wide piece of linen, my back skirt is about 20" wide and gathered to 13 inches.
Overall, I love the crop top and wish I made the skirt with a different material.
