First Day of School Project--Butterick 5776
I'm all done with the First Day of School Project and have two outfits to show for it! The first one I'm sharing with you is the girl's outfit, which was made using Butterick 5776:
The top is made from a remnant I left from a peasant top I made for me (and apparently never blogged!). It's organic cotton that I picked up at Santa Fe Fabrics on my way to a church vestry retreat last year. Really nice and a pleasure to work with. The pants are a cotton that I purchased at Stitchology during one of the project sew-a-longs that Melisa hosted.
I didn't end up adding all the embellishments I intended but it's just as well. The top got some lace trimming around the hem, courtesy of the ASG Trading Post:
And here's a shot of the capri-length pants:
