Saturday sewing

It's been a long time since I've spent time pottering in my studio.  In between children's parties and sporting activities yesterday I spent some time playing with Liberty fabric and came up with this.

Adelaide in Liberty top

This top is a mixture of this pattern and this pattern (seen here on Princess Isabella of Denmark).

It has the little keyhole detail and an empire seam with gathering underneath.  Adelaide has the prettiest pink cardigan to wear with it.

Adelaide's Liberty top

Thankfully Adelaide isn't too choosy yet about what she wears. She has her likes and dislikes but I don't make the mistake of asking her what she wants to wear.  If she had it her way she'd be wearing a synthetic fairy dress most days, even over tracksuit pants. (Now there's a good look - not.)
