I started with one of the more subdued prints, called Fluttering Fields. It's a really sweet peachy pink, with teeny butterflies and flowers. I knew the look I was going for; I wanted to make a 2+2 Skirt from Oliver + S. I thought and I thought about what type of top - in the end, I decided with a modified Oliver + S Class Picnic top. The top fabric is a really nice white cotton from Robert Kaufman - really, really nice quality.
You can clearly see my crappy ironing job at the bottom; I swear, it looks better in real life! I used a blind hem stitch, and I really need to do some better steaming along the hemline.
The 2+2 skirt is a size 3 with about 5" added to the length. She's still wearing a couple of old size 3's and it fits her fine, but the length is super short. I like the 2+2 skirt with the pleats stitched down, and not ironed like crazy. Kind of more of a dropped waist effect.
As always, here's the overload of modeled shots....
