2+2 in Blue

2+2 Blouse and Skirt by oliver+S

Missy L loves blue AND she loves City Weekend by Liesl Gibson for Moda.
Put those together and voila!

Blouse in CityWeekend trimmed with Modern Workshop
both by Liesl Gibson.

Special Mother of Pearl button from the special Justine

I omitted the ties and went with a loop.

Turquoise M O P buttons

More beautiful City Weekend

More beautiful buttons

2+2 skirt&blouse

For a twist on the 2+2 skirt I left the pleats out completely and gathered where they would normally be.

Gathers instead of pleats
I love this placket AND my Claire buttons

The elastic back
The result?
A wonderfully bouncy skirt for a wonderfully bouncy girl!

  5. How perfect are those little flower buttons with that City Weekend print!! Very nice. Missy L is such a pretty thing!

  6. Perfect buttons for the blue 2+2. And I'm lazy enough as it is, so I'm going to pretend I didn't see that unpleated skirt, giving me another excuse for a short cut...

  7. They are perfect Susanne! Justine sent them especially for Missy L,she was so excited to use them!
    Thank you I think she is very pretty too!

    Thanks Icicle,and as our favourite designer recently said ''This (the omitted pleats in this case)is an design choice''.
    Thats my story and I am sticking to it!
    (but 2 1/2 hours start to finish WITH hand sewing,got to love that 'design choice'
