Repeat

This is a repeat of the outfit I made for Miss A last fall. Before any of you call "tacky" keep in mind that we live miles away from where we used to, the colorway is different, and no one around here has seen the originals. Besides, it was one of my favorite outfits of all time, and when you find a good thing, stick with it.
It is not however my most well sewn garment of all time. Lots of user error this time around. I was SUI, sewing under the influence of children. Which is okay, that's my job. Just after a million interruptions I forgot where I left off, what I was doing, and skipped some important steps. The houndstooth was really difficult to match at the seams. The print was printed slightly off grain. I really struggled with it, and then gave up. But it looks okay all things considered. And the jacket bottom edges really do match up. The picture makes it look like they don't, but they really do. She's just really wiggley.
Pattern: Oliver + S Sunday Brunch skirt and jacket. I added 2 1/2 inches in length to both the skirt and the jacket.
Fabric: Fine wale corduroy from Farmhouse Fabrics.

I think it looks darling! And if it's any consolation, I didn't recognize the outfit at all.

It is so cute, and who cares. If I find something I like, I buy it in every color I like, at least you can sew it and make it look different. You are so very talented, she's lucky to have you as her mom, she always looks so cute!!
