I made myself an outfit!



The shirt is simplicity 4077 with New Look 6732 sleeves. The sleeves really are huge.





I'm a big fan of rickrack.

The shirt was pretty easy, though I did have problems with the front placket. Only had to rip it out once to make it work though. I have big arms for my size so instead of fiddling with the buttoned cuff, I just made it continuous. Waaaaay easier that way. I also raised the bust about an inch. I have a high bust and have found that if I do this, my shirts come out more tailored looking.

The skirt is simplicity 3754.



It looks a bit like a dishrag in the picture.



Fun pleated pockets.

Made the skirt up in one day. Easy peasy.  Cheesy

It looks rustic and "prairie."  Cute!
