V-Day attire

I decided to keep our Valentines attire simple this year. My older daughter requested a shirt to wear with jeans. She is over skirts and dresses (sad, I know). I figured making pleasant blouses would be a quick easy project. 

Unfortunately, I also decided to use fabric I had on hand. When I went through my stash, I fell in love with this vintage dotted swiss fabric.  It turned my simple project into more work than I wanted. The blouses only took about 30 minutes each to make, but I ended up making knit undershirts that took more time, Grrr. I was hoping to use white undershirts we had on hand, but they just didn't look right.  

In the end, I love the look. I think it was worth it?  


I'm loving the matching headband.  


This one was having a hard time not untying here bow, probably not the best shirt for a toddler. 



Hope you all have a Happy Valentines Day!
