Yay!! I finally made something that I would even wear everyday!!!!
This looks like a dress, but it’s a bow blouse and skirt combination.
I used elastic band for the waist.

Have you ever sewed bow blouse before? It’s easier than normal collar I think.
I am going to upload how to do it on CROCHETIE later. (www.crochetie.blogspot.com)

The fabric is just adorable which I purchased 2 months ago. It was too cute and it took me 2 months to decide to cut that!!
Well, I am satisfied with these!

Material Notes

cotton, buttons

    Perfect fit, perfect idea to create a two piece. Button down blouse so well done & great slim fit for an elastic waist skirt.. Adorable!

    I LOVE blouses with a bow tie! I’ve always wanted to try making one but I’m scared to cut into fabric and have it get wasted. :( I’ll be on the lookout for your tutorial so I can finally attempt to do it. This combo is just so great! ♥

      That’s good to hear. I learned it from a book before, and realized it’s so easy to arrange it. The tutorial will be yours;)
