My daughter picked out some owl fabric that she loved, so I went thru my patterns to figure out what kind of top I could make with just the yard that I bought. I really like the Ruska top in the Ottobre April '08 magazine. However, I didn't think she would like the neckline. Wearing a layered garment isn't really within her comfort level. Looking at the pattern pieces, I knew that this could easily be adapted for a peasant-style blouse. I cut it out in the 128 size, but I left off the seam allowance on the side only. I turned the top down by 1/2" and used 1/4" elastic. I also left the arm band piece off (per my daughter's request), and I also omitted the elastic at the bottom so it wouldn't be confining.
Shorts are made from the Craft Mama's Funky Pant Pattern.
I just LOVE these owl
earrings I found for her.....they compliment her blouse very well.
