Girls Secret Garden Peasant Blouse and Denim Ruffle Pants



I know I promised pictures of an alternative Valentines Day Dress, but it is so cold here, and cloudy at the moment.  I just don’t want to put Olivia outside on days like this.  So I thought I will show you another item that I made during my Christmas break.  This top was made specifically with my niece and daughter in mind.  I made Olivia these denim ruffle pants back in October, and yes they are available in my shop.  It is a new denim fabric that I received in four colors – green, grey, black and brown.  She loves these pants, and wore them with all kinds of Christmas outfits during the Fall months.  I wanted to make her something new, and was inspired by some fabrics that I had just added to my new website KINDERKOUTUREFABRIC .  I noticed immediately that they would be a perfect match to the green pants, so I designed a new top.  Want to order?  Just click HERE

I used an old time favorite pattern of mine from Tie Dye Diva – Ashbury Peasant Top.  Yes I did make some changes, but overall the pattern is the same.  I made the skirt a bit fuller, and added a sash.  I also added ruffles to the hem of the sleeve.  This time I decided to use a size 6 on this pattern, but the sleeves were still too tight.  So I will alter the pattern to allow for a larger armhole, and viola, a perfect pattern.  The reason I love this peasant dress is because the bodice does not look like she is wearing a big potato sack.  I also love the way the neckline is cut.  In general I use this pattern over and over again.

comp1And just for laughs, because I was too lazy to wash and iron the black pant today……I decided to photoshop the same picture and show you what the top would look like if she wore a black pant instead of the green.   I really cannot decide which one I like better.  LOL.  It is nice to know she has both options.
