As I showed you earlier, my mother-in-law (with help from my sister-in-law) picked out some cute fabric for me! My in-laws went to visit my sister-in-law and her husband in New Zealand (they are living there for a few years doing academic research with a grant from the National Science Foundation). I knew right away that the fabric was perfect for an outfit for Evelyn...
I enjoyed working with these bright, summery fabrics! The ric-rac, buttons and armhole binding all came from my stash.
I had to redo the armholes a few times, since they were a bit too small on Evelyn. Still, I'm hoping we can wear it for a few months before it gets super tight on her. The skirt should last for awhile!
These can be worn together, although the skirt gets covered up quite a bit by the top. I prefer them separate. I'll have another post soon of Evelyn wearing these :)

I didn't browse around too much, but I did find some of this fabric here. I do know that we are lucky to have easy access affordable fabric available here in the US!
I'm also grateful for loving sister-in-laws and mother-in-laws who know that I love playing with fabric!! Thanks again :)
