I am grateful and proud to be an American!
Happy Independence Day!
The back is so attractive with that big bow!
The skirt is made with a batik I fell in love with at JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts and some jacquard ribbon trim featuring blue and white flowers on a red ground. I added some width to the skirt piece making it 56 inches around.
The peasant top is made with a lovely dotted 'Swiss' type lawn I found at JoAnn's a couple of years ago. The blue and red on the white background make it perfect for wearing with red, blue, white, or jeans for the holiday weekend. It is so soft! I decided to give it a tuck at the hemline to add a bit of weight to the blouse and tiny French lace edging to the sleeves. I thought about the lace after I had already hemmed the sleeve so I just teeny-tiny zig-zagged the lace to the edges.
Happy Fourth of July! God bless America! God bless us ALL!
