Happy Friday + Starry Peter Pan Blouse + Burgundy Tiered Skirt

Happy Friday! Another week, another outfit from my now favorite Japanese pattern book.

How cute is the peter pan collar on this top? OK, the right side seems a little wonky, but you hardly notice it in real life. The fabric is a Japanese double gauze, which is a dream to sew. The skirt is from A Girl’s Wardrobe, which is another good pattern book. The skirt took a mere half hour to make from start to finish, can you believe it? It’s just three rectangles pieced together, after all. The blouse took a lot longer, but still, so fun to make.

I’m starting to get into the sewing groove now that it’s not sweltering in our house…and what’s extra nice is that after four years of on-and-off sewing, I don’t pull out my hair nearly as much when trying to figure out the various steps. I daresay that I might be just a notch above a beginner now.

Next on the list: a Figgy Sunki dress! Have a lovely weekend, friends!

  1. adorable outfit. Thanks for including the links to the pattern books. I’ve decided I need to be on the lookout for a good Japanese pattern book or two for children’s clothing.
