Jump to the present and the purchase of some ADORABLE ladybug/heart fabric for Our KK. She LOVES ladybugs, even dressed up as one for Halloween. I asked her if she wanted me to make her a skirt out of it and she asked me if I could make her a shirt instead. Of course I can. I would make anything she asked me to and LOVE the fact that she is involved with the making of her clothes. However, I have never made a shirt before. Dresses, check; skirts, check; shirts, ummm, no. I remembered seeing the peasant blouse though and thought this one looked the easiest and cutest out of all the handmade shirts I had seen. Add to that the fact that it was Prudent Baby giving the tute and I was all good for making the shirt.
It was just as simple as I thought it would be. Another blog I "stalk" is Craftiness Is Not Optional. She also made the Peasant Top except she added a tie at the bottom. I LOVED this so I did it to KK's also. This blouse is GREAT and I cannot wait to make more for my girls. The BEST thing about KK's shirt is that it can double as a dress for Our G. Got to LOVE that!!
KK has not been here since her shirt was finished so I have no pics of her modeling it (YET) but here are some pics of the shirt and Our G in it:
