alert the media!

I actually finished something!

I call it "very cherry." It's the first thing that popped into my head and I'm too lazy to try and come up with another name.

This is a very wide, swingy tank with wide, comfy pants to match. The fabric is 100% cotton from Joann's, but it has a nice weight - it's one of their higher end cottons. The ruffle is maybe Michael Miller? Not sure. It's red with white pin dots.

It was a bit tedious because of that biiiiiig ruffle and the fact that the neck and armholes are all finished with bias tape rather than a facing (for the record, I prefer facing!), but with a working serger the pants were super fast and it all came together at last.

This outfit will be listed over at BonBons along with a few other Spring items, but I am waiting until I have several things ready so I can do one major update.

In the meantime I will reward myself by starting Daughter's Easter dress. I hope to get the pattern traced tonight. Stay tuned!

I like how girly it is without being overly pompous :)

I prefer to dress my daughter in overly pompous as much as possible.

LOVE the cherries outfit. Can't wait to see what else is coming off the machine! BTW- that cherry fabric is Robert Kaufman.
