And Elsa was next.
And she liked this.

She chose the box room.
For the cami top she found some lemon hanky linen and she quite liked the look of a Vogue pattern I had made up for them when they were little.
Jed had found this remnant of cotton sateen at Spotlight a few weeks earlier. It was $1,marked down from $16.99/m.
Elsa decided that would do nicely and she found some white voile to line it.
She has already earmarked some pink with white polka dots cord to make the blazer when it is her next turn.
The camisole is so sweet.
The side panels are cut on the bias so it is fitted but still comfortable. It has a side zipper to facilitate dressing and keep the lovely shape.
For the skirt,we used the oliver+s 2+2 skirt as a base. I added length and kept the front waist band flat and the back gathered so it would pull on. Then I gathered the skirt rather the pleating it.
The lining I hemmed just a wee bit longer so that it shows as she walks.
A perfectly sweet summer outfit.
Perfect for a hot day.
But hopefully with tights,boots and a blazer she can rug it for winter.
However,it is far too hot to think about that today.
