For some reason, I have random sewing sprees.
and then make nothing for months at a time. =_=!!

This was made mostly from scratch, but the beige meshy fabric is straight off a shirt i never wore (it was too tight on the arms, so i chopped 'em off)  Grin I still have the body of the shirt, but that's a whole nother project.  Wink
Then I made a simple tube top out of the brown fabric and blue hounds tooth i am INLOVE WITH.
Then I put 'em together.
Took some lace. Tied a bow. Sewed that baby down.





..I actually made the skirt as well, but from scratch..
But if anyone cares, I made a tube for the waist-part and a strip of fabric about 1.5 x the length of your waistband part. Pin, sew.  Smiley

I love this shirt- it's gotta be one of my fav things I've ever made. It's sailor-ish but school girl.. but with a tad of lolita...  Roll Eyes

The skirt is really well done and cute! Cheesy But that shirt is absolutely gorgeous, I love the choice of fabrics and I would definitely want a bow like that on my clothes.

I love the skirt and the top.

In fact, I can't decide which one I like more, which is saying something because I am a sucker for houndstooth!

They are both perfectly adorable!
