In an earlier post I mentioned how much I love Simplicity 1364 blouse pattern. I loved it so much I wanted to make more versions of this blouse.
While searching my stash I found I had a lovely butterfly print fabric and decided to use it for another blouse.
I really liked how the piping turned out on my shift dress I decided to add piping to this blouse.
After making the blouse I found that I had enough fabric left over that I could make a matching skirt.
I decided to make a simple gathered skirt. To give the set a more dress like appearance I aded piping to the skirt waistband.
While the print might be a bit childish I really love the fun look of this this combo. I also love that at first glance it looks like a dress, but has the versatility of a two piece.
