Description

I wore this shirt to Austin’s annual Kite Festival, hence the name. The pattern is Simplicity 2601 (with a few minor changes) and I used some Japanese floral cotton lawn I bought recently along with some off white bias tape I had lying around and some pearl snap-looking buttons that are actually a tiny bit too small for the loops. Oops. Going to have to buy bigger ones. You can’t even really see them in these shots anyway because the ruffle covers them up.

The floral print makes it difficult to see the seams and details on the shirt so I added some close ups. Great top for spring!

    Very pretty! I’m such a sucker for ruffles. And the shaping of this top is so flattering!
