It's my birthday and I made a new outfit, happy birthday to me!
I used New Look 6808 for the top, I thought I should keep it simple given the loud print. I absolutely love the fabric for this top, so bright and pretty, not usually my colours but the instant fabric crush was too strong not to make something for myself. I've posted this photo on this blog before, but here's another closeup because it's just so darn pretty.
I used cotton sateen for the skirt, it's so lovely and heavy and holds the gathers so well.
I've had a lot of sewing time recently so also managed to whip up a top for my nephew's 1st birthday on Monday, it's kind of awesome even if I do say so myself...
