So last week I showed you all the massively cute jeans I made for my girls. Well today I am going to show you the top!
Easter dresses I made my girls this year? Well this shirt came in the pattern as well.
I did make some of the same adjustments as I did for the dress as well. I made the neck line higher and I made my own bias tape (once you start making bias tape you will never go back!) But on this shirt I wanted the ruffle to be more ruffled than it was on the dresses. I was happy with the look but it caused one problem: The ruffle that got wrapped under made a big poof. So I found the spots where a ruffle naturally ends/begins and I tacked those spots down. I used my sewing machine to tack down instead of doing it by hand because I am lazy like that.
All you do is turn the feed dog on you machine off. This way you material will stay in one spot under the needle. Then I set my needle to do a slight zig zag. And voila that spot is down for good.
This wrap dress/top pattern is one of the best patterns I have ever bought. Totally worth it!
So a super cute shirt plus super cute jeans= one amazingly cute first grader on her first day of school.
Best part is: For both my girls back to school outfits I spent $12! Not $12 per outfit but $12 total!!! You really can't beat that.
Now to wait a week to send the pre-schooler off and maybe some sanity will begin to return....
