A little librarian chic??? Yes please!!!
This is an outfit that was created unintentionally. I made both pieces independently to then realise they are working together very well, despite their clashing prints/patterns.
The blouse is another pussy bow blouse, same style as this one here but with short puffy sleeves instead of the straight long ones. I used a floral print poly cotton. I love the print and colours, so vibrant.
The pinafore skirt is made from a simple pencil skirt pattern. I drafted a scalloped high waistband to go with it and added optional straps so it can be worn either as just a high waisted pencil skirt or a pinafore. I used a very nice and soft checked suiting. I'm thinking of making a dress from the same material if it stays this cold (it's freezing here)
I'm very much into big bun hair dos at the moment, too. Cute and easy to do, and I can do it with post running/swimming hair. YEY!!!
Blouse and pinafore are also available to order here.
