I'm so glad I had prepped a few projects, tracing-wise and cutting-wise. It makes it that much easier to start sewing when I push the kids and their dad out the front door. Last weekend, they went to Skylight Cave for a couple hours while I got my sew on. I pulled out the fabric for the Music Class top and skirt by Oliver and S. I feel like it's the third time I've sewn the top, but it's definitely only the second time I've sewn the skirt.

Other than sewing up the twelve pintucks, LOL, the outfit goes together quite fast. I love that the skirt is stinkin' cute but super simple. The top takes longer, of course, as there is hand-sewing at the collar. I'm not sure if it's my cleanest finish, but I'm always trying to get that placket/collar join better every time I sew it.
I used stash fabric for both items... The Alice in Wonderland print is something I've had for a few years, and there was only a yard, so, I was never quite sure what to do with it, but yay - a solution! I was originally going to pair the shirt with pink corduroy, but I couldn't handle all that blinding pink in one outfit, aha!

I will have to WAY apologize for the disappearing ink NOT disappearing.... YIKES. I had "washed" it out before leaving the house for Camden's Community Day, but it reappeared, of course. And I'm not a magical faery elf creature with fancy photoshop skills ;)
Simple as that, though - easy outfit, cute results, yay for one more outfit out of the way! I thought I'd get a chance to sew up the Zonen Jacob pants, too, but that didn't happen....maybe this weekend!
