Hello everyone! As I write this blog post there are so many changes in the works for my family that I can barely think straight. The most exciting of all is that our youngest child is graduating from high school next week. I can’t believe that my baby has reached this milestone in his life. To say I love him is beyond an understatement. He’s such a wonderful young man and so full of life. He loves to dance (like his mom), hang out with his friends, and eat. He plans to attend our local community college for two years and then transfer to the school of his choice. We’re proud of his accomplishment and can’t wait to see where God leads him.
Coral Peasant Blouse
When I saw this pattern, my first thought was to make the mini dress and wear it as a top. There is an option for a top with View B, but I prefer the longer version. There are so many styling options for this dress. Leggings, jeans, capris, and shorts would all look lovely paired with this beauty. I knew I wanted to make it in a light, springy fabric, so I chose this gorgeous 100% Cotton Embroidered Eyelet fabric. I paired mine with white leggings and tube top. See the pattern review below for more details.
