Birthday outfit for a Mademoiselle

Mademoiselle E is 5 today and I thought that deserved a special outfit.

She has been coveting a denim skirt that her sister has for a while so I decided to do something similar but with a coordinating blouse.

The blouse pattern is from Homemde Kids pattern book and has a gathered neckline with two buttons (or I used press studs). The arms have a gathered frill at the bottom, which suits Miss E perfectly. The fabric was bought early in the summer whilst visiting my sister and is a kaffe fasset cotton. I trimmed the neckline with red bias binding. The finishing touch is a fabric flower in denim and blouse fabric over the press stud.

The skirt is made in soft denim cotton and has two front pockets and two back patch pockets - all of which have detail that coordinates with the blouse. I also finished the hem with bias made from the blouse fabric. The waist is elasticated.

Happy Birthday Miss E!!
