2 + 2 blouse

Here it is! I love, love, LOVE the way this turned out. This is made from another oliver + s pattern, the 2 + 2 blouse and pleated skirt. I haven't made the skirt yet, so I can't speak for it, but this blouse is lovely. Super detailed instructions, just like all the oliver + s patterns. And adorable details, from the gathers and ties to the cute little patch on the front. I'm already looking forward to making the short-sleeve version for next summer.

This is the first piece of the baby's "winter wardrobe". I've chosen purple for her signature color, so you'll be seeing a lot of it. I mostly picked it to match her new shoes, an awesome pair of see kai runs that I bought on sale looooong before they fit her. Coming up in future posts are more pajamas and a winter coat that I'm so excited about, and definitely more blouses too. Possibly some big girl clothes, too!

eta: I've had this post in the pipe for a day and a half because I wanted to get a shot or two of the blouse being worn, but we've been felled by a sick kid and short school days, so I figure I better just post the damn thing before I forget about it. I'll try to add some model shots later if I remember.
