cherry blossoms galore.

the hubby has been out of town all week and so i have accomplished much in the way of sewing and eating ginger cookies, as that is what i do best when the hubby is absent: make things and consume too many baked goods.

i have not photographed my expanding waistline, but here's a top i made for elle:

cherry blossoms galore

possibly my new favorite kiddly top. classic lines, swingish, vintage button closure, in a gorgey cherry blossom print. if only it would fit me.

I think I like the button almost as much as the whole shirt. Gorgeous.

Love the top and the sleeves are the most perfect little cap sleeves! I am working on a dress for my 4 year old and can't find a cap sleeve that I love...did you just draft up the little sleeve with that tiny pleat? Is there any way you can reproduce the dimensions so I could make the same sleeve? I would LOVE love to have it so I could put them on my daughter's dress...please let me know if this is possible! :) Thanks!

I love the material! If her aunt knew how to sew she would try and recreate that in her grown up size.
