Two + Two



My plan to make this outfit started over a year ago.  I was reading the so-cal sewing mom blog and saw this blouse.    I ordered the fabric from her right away for the blouse and then I ordered the Oliver and S 2+2 pattern.   I found some denim from Joanns.  I think I cut the outfit out in March or April.  I made the skirt and loved it.  Then I was working on other things.  I can't even remember what.  When it became short sleeve weather I lost interest in making the blouse and it sat for a while.  I finally got around to working on it again at the end of November and finished it the beginning of December.  And now that I am back to blogging (and I am so happy to be too), I thought I would share it.


I used some milky pink flowery buttons from Joanns on the back.


I don't have much to say to say about the pattern other than I love how the outfit come out.  I don't remember much sewing them.  But  I have found every Oliver and S pattern I have made to be wonderful, detailed, and adorable. 

Speaking of adorable.........

I have that pattern and have been meaning to make it for so long now. After seeing your cutie in it I am determined to make it this year for at least one of my crazies. :) Love the fabric! I think I am obsessed with all things France and Paris. :)

Super cute and what great fabric! I tried this blouse last summer and wasn't wild about the fit on E but this has inspired me to try it again!

I LOVE this! That fabric on the blouse is seriously amazing. I think I need to start stocking up on Oliver + S patterns for when I have kids someday :)
